Blunkett tipped to head study on youth volunteers

There’s an article in today’s Guardian about the proposed compulsory youth ‘volunteering’ scheme.

David Blunkett, the former home ­secretary, is to draw up plans for the prime minister to make all teenagers take part in voluntary work, according to officials.

 

Blunkett is expected to chair an ­advisory panel on how to make the under-19s complete 50 hours of ­community ­service, something Gordon Brown has said he wants to make a manifesto commitment.”
