Volunteering Matters

Volunteering Matters commits to inspiring more young people to play an active role in building strong and inclusive communities through high quality social action that benefits themselves and society as a whole.

In 2017, we plan to:
Involve over 250 young people in social action in Hackney, Harringey, Tower Hamlets, Ipswich and Torfaen, South Wales.

Engage some of the most disadvantaged young people in social action, including unaccompanied young asylum seekers.

Launch a campaign to increase the numbers of youth people involved in our Full Time Volunteering programme, which offers a unique opportunity for young people to live away from home for 6-12 months while taking part in a worthwhile programme to support disadvantaged people and communities.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
