Leaders in volunteering policy

Our policy work provides leadership for the sector, ensuring  that volunteers’ voices are heard and able to influence national and local policy development. Our policy knowledge also informs the delivery of our own programmes to ensure that they  fully support individual and community wellbeing.

We lead the Network of National Volunteer-Involving Agencies (NNVIA) which brings together more than 100 national charities, who between them involve more than two million volunteers across the UK.
