With the additional work and flexibility demands that was required of volunteers, your volunteer base may need a 'Resilience Booster'.

This 90 minute online session is focused on helping volunteers and community organisations get back their “bounce” and provide some strategies for selfcare and recovery from a very difficult year.

This interactive and online seminar will cover :

  • Check-in about the impact of COVID-19   
  • Understand and notice the impact of stress and anxiety, and how to manage
  • Steps to respond to emotional interactions working with community and keeping everyone safe, including phrases we can use to encourage safety back onsite
  • Applying debrief techniques: The Vent technique, The brush technique & the burn off technique, The switch off technique and reset technique.
  • Understanding the core components & key characteristics of resilience   
  • Applying quick & easy resilience techniques to support wellbeing 
  • Get the resilience habit! Apply resilience activities throughout the day.   

The session will be held online, however we also aim to support those volunteers who are not able to access a laptop can come and join others to watch the session on the big screen at one of our local community hubs (venue to be confirmed).
