The volunteering pledge 2024

  1. Volunteering is the backbone of our society. It brings people together, promotes social cohesion and is good for the individual’s physical and mental well-being as well as the cause they are supporting.
  2. Volunteering depends on a well resourced and sustained voluntary sector made up of organisations of all sizes. Both local and central governments should do everything they can to enable the sector to flourish.
  3. Volunteering should be available to all. Every effort should be made to ensure there is access to volunteering opportunities whatever your background and individual circumstances.
  4. Governments should encourage volunteering as a way of developing social, personal and wider skillbase that increase employability.
  5. The Big Help Out should be supported as a national initiative that each year reaches out to people not currently volunteering.
