NCVO defines volunteering as any activity that involves spending time, usually unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives. Central to this definition is the fact that volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual.
This can include formal activity undertaken through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action.
In this panel discussion, we will hear from volunteers and community organisations that have relied on volunteers for their very survival.
The discussion will highlight the benefits to all involved for the greater good of the LGBTQ+ community in the UK.
