Thirty of the best known volunteering charities have come together in the Shaping the Future with Volunteering group. You may well support them and other charities in your constituency.

Volunteering is a key contributor to society. It helps communities support each other and the world they live in. Over 14 million adults have volunteered in 2021 [1].  As well as helping others, volunteering is good for your physical and mental health. Volunteering has economic value too, contributing at least £4.6 billion [2] each year to the economy.

We are calling on all Parliamentary Candidates to support the Volunteering Pledge
