Volunteer Now has produced a report on how Councils in Northern Ireland recognise and celebrate volunteering. Download a copy of the report.
Volunteer Now has convened a forum of local councils to look at volunteer policy development for Councils. The groups have produced a sample Volunteer Policy which councils can use as a starting point when developing their own policy. The sample policy looks at issues councils should consider about involving volunteers in their own service delivery as well as the role Councils can play in supporting volunteering at a local level. Download a copy of the sample policy.
The group plan to continue to meet over the next year to look at other issues relevant to local councils in supporting volunteering, e.g. recognition.
