DCMS has commissioned Steve Holliday, former chief executive of National Grid plc, to chair an independent Full-Time Social Action review.
This will consider what the voluntary sector, industry and, if needed, government can do to support full-time volunteering. The review will work with a variety of stakeholders to develop recommendations, including consultation with the voluntary sector, young people, employment and regulatory experts, economists and parliamentarians.
The review will gather evidence on the current opportunities available, the current status of full-time volunteers, the impact of full-time social action on young people and their communities, the barriers facing participants and providers, and how the UK compares to other countries’ provision of full-time social action opportunities.
The review is seeking evidence from a wide range of stakeholders to inform its recommendations and is particularly interested in hearing from young people, whether they undertake social action on a full-time or part-time basis, or not at all, as well as from organisations which offer opportunities and / or benefit from social action by young people.
