Policy and Consultation

Volunteering Policy Forum

In order to disseminate policy information, facilitate policy development and influence policy decision making which is relevant and focused on volunteering, a Volunteering Policy Forum is organised 3-4 times per year.

The Forum is chaired by Volunteer Now and supported as part of NICVA's Policy Fora. For further information on the aim of the Forum, contact Christine on christine.irvine@volunteernow.co.uk or T: 02890 818332.

The date and venue for the next Volunteer Policy Forum is:

  • Wednesday 20th March 10am-12pm in NICVA.
  • To register for this session email cathy.breslin@nicva.org or call 02890 877777


Volunteer Now is committed to seeking the views of its members regularly in relation to policy which may impact on volunteering. This allows us to formulate policy responses which take on board the views of practitioners and include reflection on the possible practical implications of proposed policies.

To view copies of the consultations which Volunteer Now have recently responded to because they are relevant to volunteering, go to the publications page.

Volunteer Now welcomes any comments or inclusions you would like to make to any of the consultations we respond to email: policy@volunteernow.co.uk or Call 02890 818 332

We alert people to the consultations we are responding to in V-Connect, our member newsletter. Membership is free to all organisation and individuals with an interest in volunteering and can be completed electronically from our home page.
