Points of Light seeking Volunteer Case Studies!

Volunteer Now's Youth Team is delighted to be supporting six Young Social Action (YSA) Ambassadors! Vikki Lutton, David Sands, Darren McDonagh, Fergal McFerran, Ryan Clarke and Paul Loughran have been selected by the Cabinet Office to find inspirational case studies about outstanding volunteers who are making a change in their community and inspiring others.  Three of the young people (David, Ryan and Fergal) attended training in Downing Street - (No 10!!!) yesterday and would love the opportunity to talk to inspirational people in order to gain their story.  The case studies will be used by the Cabinet Office to showcase volunteering, used within reports and speeches as well as influencing policy development and put forward for recognition awards.  The main aim is to help the Government support and encourage volunteering.  NI case studies will also be shared via the Volunteer Now website.

If you know an inspirational volunteer and think that they would like to share their story please email scott.cooper@volunteernow.co.uk who will pass on their details to the team.  Once they have their own email addresses we will share these with you for direct access.
