Volunteering: the 20/20 vision

What is this volunteering campaign? Volunteering: the 20/20 vision, is a six month programme for people who oversee, manage or lead volunteers. We have been asking ourselves, our network, you and the wider voluntary sector: What’s next for volunteering?

Over the next six months we will reflect and share how 2020 has highlighted new ways that the general public are engaging with volunteering. For many years we have talked about the future of volunteering, what this could look like and how the public may want something different, Covid-19 has shown us the future of volunteering is now here!! Each month there will be a spotlight on a different theme inspiring us to think differently: Innovation, Community, 5 Ways to Wellbeing, Local Businesses, Suffolk
Action Week, Trustees and 2021.

Our vision is a campaign and programme that will reach everyone who support, manage and lead volunteers. Together we can share ideas, inspire, support each other and continue to engage the public with volunteering through and beyond Covid-19.
