Place of publication:

This toolkit takes an inclusive and broad approach to social action and volunteering – including both formal and informal opportunities for young people to engage within health and care settings and wider activity that is often described as social action. It looks at the benefits of youth volunteering, setting out the evidence that may help develop a business case and considers what roles are suitable for young volunteers and provides examples of where these have been applied. The guide provides information on how to get started, good practice in volunteer management, key considerations when involving young volunteers, management of risk and the importance of recognising the contribution of volunteers. Sections on effective fundraising and measuring and demonstrating impact are also included. (Edited publisher abstract)
