Happy New Year

Volunteering is usually in people's top ten resolutions - and the Government are encouraging it this year.

In its latest green paper on Giving, it wants to promote social action.

Apparently there are over 3 million of us who are willing to volunteer but haven't got round to it yet.

And most of us hear about volunteering by word of mouth.

So, here's my really easy suggestion for a new year's resolution - talk about your volunteering. Talk about how amazing it is, or just that you plan to start. Talk about it with you family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, and strangers....I think that might give you the boost to get started too.

And remember, if you want help on how to start or what you can do - we're here to help.
