Politics Show Covers Volunteering

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:
