We believe in keeping volunteering voluntary and will not participate in government workfare schemes

We’ve added our organisation’s name to the growing list of charities, community groups and other voluntary organisations expressing their support for volunteering and opposition to workfare at www.keepvolunteeringvoluntary.net

As charities and voluntary organisations we know the value of volunteering. Volunteering means people independently choosing to give their time freely to help others and make the world a better place. Workfare schemes force unemployed people to carry out unpaid work or face benefit sanctions that can cause hardship and destitution.   We believe in keeping volunteering voluntary and will not participate in government workfare schemes.
