Recruiting volunteers is always a challenge but finding the right Chair is particularly so. A good Chair will give direction and focus to work of your CPRE branch and provide strong leadership to your Trustees.

Finding a good fit for your group's needs is essential for your branch's good health and ongoing development so particular attention needs to be paid to the process of recruiting a new Chair. We have therefore, produced a comprehensive pack to guide you through this step by step.

This toolkit is designed to help CPRE branches with recruiting and managing volunteers. Use the short five-step guide and choose from almost 30 templates on all aspects of volunteering.

"An impressive resource. Full of useful easy-to-read information"
Sally Hanrahan, CPRE Northamptonshire

"The Handbook captures all the best ways of doing the basics. Remember, someone did it before you!"
Geoff Lambert, CPRE Bedfordshire
