A new Volunteer Training scheme is launching across Weymouth and Portland to help people get the most from their community work.

The free six month course is starting on the 2nd of November and it'll include developing skills like deep listening, recruiting volunteers and digital communication.

It's being run by Portland Community Organisers who are using their experience in the field to help others.

Senior Community Organiser at Island Community Action William Buchan said "I am really looking forward to seeing how the volunteers take their new found skills and use them to spread the work into Weymouth and perhaps beyond"

Participants will walk away from the 6 months training with the sense that they have learned something valuable, that will not only be useful in helping others, but it will be useful to them immediately."
