Institute campaigns for inclusion of fundraising in volunteering

The Institute’s new campaign is prompted by the launch of the Department of Health’s consultation ‘Towards a strategy to support volunteering in health and social care’, designed to act as a blueprint to inform other government-led volunteering initiatives.
The Institute wants to encourage fundraising organisations whose work is supported by volunteer fundraisers to complete a survey about volunteer fundraising in their organisations.
The survey findings will help provide the evidence base of the Institute’s submission to the consultation to ensure the contribution volunter fundraisers make, both in the NHS and more generally, are acknowledged and take the campaign forward.
The last date for completing the survey is 12 September. Visit www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk/volunteering
