Karen Kinsley

Karen started her career as a primary school teacher with a passion and interest in volunteers in education. She then moved to work in the Education team at her local municipality, developing training and support for volunteers within schools and especially those working with Special Needs children.

Since then, she has worked with volunteers in schools, youth work, in culture and arts settings, in welfare and communities. Karen has set in place volunteer policies and guidance in many settings, including previously managing a team of over 60 volunteers at JW3, London’s Jewish Community Centre. She is passionate about how managers and oragnisations can put procedures in place to lead to a rewarding and valued volunteering experience for both the volunteer and the organisation.
