In 1997 Rob set up UKVPMs, the first ever email networking resource for volunteer managers in the UK.

UKVPMs is a lively, friendly and participative networking and communication resource for all Volunteer Programme Managers working in the United Kingdom.

UKVPMs mission is to increase the scope, scale and quality of both voluntary activity and the management of volunteers.

UKVPMs seeks to achieve this by bringing Volunteer Programme Managers together in a virtual community to develop their skills and knowledge for the purpose of taking action towards our common goals.

UKVPMs is free to join so please sign up by either sending an email or by visiting the website.
