One of the most effective tools we can offer for the recruitment of Volunteers is Milo.

Milo is the database of volunteering opportunities used in our offices to match prospective volunteers to an appropriate organisation and opportunity. It is also linked to the national volunteering website www.volunteerscotland.net and our own online search webpage through which volunteers can find out about volunteering for your organisation without visiting the Volunteer Centre.

To get your organisations and volunteer opportunties included on milo all you need to do is complete a simple registration form. You can download a form here.

We are also happy to offer assistance with the writing of press releases, designing of posters and dealing with the media.

Organisations can also utilise the window display in our Stornoway office for publicity and we are always happy to include items in our quarterly newsletter.

You can find more advice on recruiting and keeping your volunteers in our good practice guides..
