Top Tips for Parent Recruitment info


Try asking individuals to help with specific roles that may suit them well if blanket emails/posts asking for help aren't working. Think of parents, friends, colleagues, family, past acquaintances, neighbours to ask to help.

Think out the box about how they could help: hall maintenance, fundraising, website/newsletter/photographer/ social media development, quartermaster, weekend activity supporters as well as leaders/assistants and exec members.
