Volunteering debate in the Commons

An interesting debate in the Commons on Wednesday (4th June) on volunteering. One thing that particularly caught my eye was the discussion about the success or otherwise of the Experience Corps and v, following on from the Conservatives' suggestion that some of the Government's initiatives are little more than 'a launch, a lunch and a logo.'

Certainly, many people in the sector see the Experience Corps as an example of how not to spend public money to develop volunteering, although Tom Levitt pointed out that it was still going 5 years after Government funding had ended.

Worth a read.
