north yorkshire volunteering strategy
The sector’s vision for volunteering in York and North Yorkshire
The VCSE Strategic Leaders’ Group, made up of chief officers of key third sector organisations operating in York, North Yorkshire and the East
Riding, wants to make volunteering in North Yorkshire’s communities more recognised, visible and valued.
The Group has prepared the ‘North Yorkshire Volunteering Strategy’ which aims to set the scene for volunteering over the next five years across
The Strategy sets out four clear aims:
- To provide every individual with the opportunity to volunteer
- To make volunteering more recognised, visible and valued
- To ensure that all organisations can deliver an quality volunteering experience and benefit in return
- To offer effective support to individual volunteers and to organisations providing volunteering opportunities
The Strategy looks at ways of offering different volunteering options to meet individual needs such as supported volunteering for individuals with
a disability or additional support needs; or home-based volunteering where an individual can volunteer from home; another option to be explored
is one-off volunteering where volunteers undertake a one-off piece of work such as helping at an event.
