The Government is committed to enabling people of all backgrounds to contribute their time and talents to their communities through volunteering and social action. The Government supports a number of programmes which enable volunteering opportunities. Examples include:

  • Through the #iwill fund £20m of government investment has been matched with more than £90m of investment from 28 partner funders. So far, this has created 500,000 high quality opportunities for young people to make change in their communities.
  • The Centre for Social Action which has invested over £9m in programmes that encourage adult volunteering initiatives that bring people together and support social outcomes.
