Voluntary Sector Assembly – What’s Up With Volunteering?

Date & Time of Event: Tuesday 24 June, 2014 – 13:00 to 16:30
Venue: Mechanics Institute, 103 Princess St, Manchester, M1 6DD

The Key Debate: Volunteering, workfare or something else – the shape of things to come?

As the role of volunteering in civil society becomes a key plank of economic policy and a component of welfare reform we ask the questions:
What is volunteering, what is it becoming and how do we feel the sector should respond?

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

Networking Opportunities – Opportunities for organisations to showcase their work and find out what else is going on in the sector in their area, across the city and nation wide.

Open Space – an opportunity for voluntary sector organisations to run workshops to inform, showcase, provoke a discussion, or get others involved in a campaign.
