It was interesting to see the BBC's 'Politics Show' covering volunteering yesterday. The main programme featured a report by Baroness Julia Neuberger talking about the benefits of volunteering. It spelt out a lot of what was contained in the report by the Commission on the Future of Volunteering chaired by the Baroness. You can read a written article on this video report here.
As part of the region section of the Politics Show a number of different video reports were broadcast in different areas. Including the following:
The first part of the discussion looking at the role of volunteers in the public services.
The second discussion looking at the role of volunteers in the public services.
To show how reliant our public services are on volunteers, we look at what would happen if they all suddenly quit.
Charities have been experiencing a shortage of volunteer drivers because of the rising cost of motoring.
