Volunteer Now, as part of the Department for Communities RISP consultation, are giving volunteer involving organisations the opportunity to be heard through a series of focus groups regarding volunteering matters. 

We want the voices of our members and stakeholders to be heard and help shape our response to the proposed government policy over the next 4 years 2017-2021.  Volunteering matters to the voluntary and community sector and to make volunteering better for organisations, volunteers and for communities To view the consultation for reference please click on the following link:
