The Government are keen to use the momentum created by both Olympic and Paralympic Games to encourage even more people to continue volunteering. We are currently in discussion with LOCOG, who own the database for the majority of volunteers, about how to best keep them engaged, to ensure that the volunteering and social action legacy of the games is maintained and enhanced.
