Shaping the Future with Volunteering group

We believe volunteering can play a transformative role in creating the kind of society we all want to live in, helping address the biggest challenges that we face from Covid recovery to mental health to climate change. That’s why Rotary has come together with 17 other national charities, including Royal Voluntary Service, Scouts and The National Trust to build on the momentum created during the pandemic.

We are committed to working together and with others across charities, government, and the private sector to support all communities across the UK to be dynamic and welcoming places for volunteering.

Together, we will together on four action areas;

  1. Understanding - Promoting the power of volunteering
  2. Inclusion - Sharing a commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion
  3. Support - Learning more about how volunteers can be supported
  4. Partnerships - Working with other organisations of all shapes and sizes
