Vision for Volunteering

The Vision for Volunteering is a ten-year collaborative project designed to create a better future for volunteering.

Volunteering Matters has worked alongside charities, volunteers, public bodies and the private sector to create the Vision for Volunteering.

The Vision for Volunteering, sets out principles for a diverse, innovative, sustainable, ambitious and person-centred future for volunteering in England.

The Vision outlines what’s needed to ensure volunteering can continue to make a big impact for the next decade – and beyond. Hundreds of people and organisations contributed to the Vision through workshops, interviews and submitting evidence.
