The NCVO released a report
recently suggesting that large charities have grown in the past year while medium and small charities struggle.
Youth volunteering is on the up (as mentioned in the above link) and if you want to get involved and capture some of the Youth Volunteering Market there is a new Social Action Toolkit
available for organisations - free of charge. This also comes along with the BBC News
piece on the dramatic rise in volunteering for 16 - 25 year olds.
Slightly older news - The budget came out in March - a sign of relief for charities as the NCVO puts it. You can see their thoughts
on what will impact charities.
Slightly controversial, but I'd like to think we aren't biased when it comes to putting forward volunteering information - Volunteering isn't as beneficial as we tend to think it is
? Interested to hear your thoughts on this one. Personally I think the benefits of volunteering are long lasting - Perhaps think of the volunteers who have moved into employment from their time volunteering? Those volunteers who were once service users and now support the service. I could argue this all day...
by sector specialists nfpSynergy found that charities have one of the lowest levels of complaints across 7 sectors, but they also have the highest level of people wanting to complain but not doing so.
