Letter in Third Sector magazine from AVM (7 May)

What the first in-depth study of volunteer managers and management (Third Sector, 23 April) really does highlight is the shameful level of funding being invested in how we manage volunteers. Many of this country's services and charities would collapse without volunteers and yet just half of organisations who involve volunteers fund volunteer management through the core budget and a quarter did not provide any funding at all

This shows how much we still take for granted the millions of volunteers who freely give their time, skills and knowledge each year and is a wake-up call to policymakers, funders and organisations who don't value volunteer management, that we must invest in the quality, if we want to achieve the quantity.

  1. It would be interesting to see if anyone writes in from funders or CEOs of large charities to respond to the 'shame' you have highlighted?
