Webinar: Virtual Operations Support Team

28th March 1pm - 2pm


Volunteers have a long-established role in emergency response. For many years responders have worked alongside 4 x 4 drivers and farmers in severe weather. The British Red Cross is at the forefront of volunteering in a crisis, along with mountain rescue teams and other specialist groups.

But in recent years we’ve seen the emergence of another group of people who offer their support and expertise in an emergency - so called digital volunteers working as a Virtual Operations Support Team or VOST for short.

In this webinar, EPC Associate Nigel Kay delves more deeply into the potential benefits of digital volunteering, considers the pitfalls of social media, and asks what support and training may be required to develop the VOST concept more widely across the UK.
