Keep Volunteering Voluntary

Thursday, 29 May 2014

Woodcraft Folk has joined hundreds of other charities and community organisations backing the Keep Volunteering Voluntary Agreement which says:

"As charities and voluntary organisations we know the value of volunteering. Volunteering means people independently choosing to give their time freely to help others and make the world a better place. Workfare schemes force unemployed people to carry out unpaid work or face benefit sanctions that can cause hardship and destitution. We believe in keeping volunteering voluntary and will not participate in government workfare schemes.”
