The Government are keen to use the momentum created by the Olympic and Paralympic Games to encourage even more people to continue volunteering. We are in discussion with LOCOG about how to best keep the London 2012 volunteers engaged. We are backing frontline organisations to support existing and new volunteering opportunities, as well as investing in infrastructure and reducing bureaucracy to better connect volunteers to local and national opportunities.
