VE report rise in volunteering enquries

Volunteering England this week highlighted that the number of people looking for opportunities to volunteer has increased in recent months. In research for the Institute for Volunteering Research on the role of Volunteer Centres in supporting and developing the link between volunteering and increased employability, the overwhelming majority of centres had seen an increase in enquiries in the last six months, and YouthNet, the home of volunteering website do-it.org.uk, saw applications rise by 115% between 2007 and 2008. 

Has this translated to organisations getting more enquiries themselves?
