Project to encourage diverse range of NHS volunteers

Published: Wed, 06 Jun 2007 15:31:08

Ed Miliband, Minister for the Third Sector, and Ivan Lewis, Health Minister, on 5 June 2007 launched a £265,000 scheme to open NHS volunteering to a wider range of volunteers by getting under–represented groups involved – especially young people and those at risk of social exclusion.

The new Volunteering in Health project – jointly funded by the Office of the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office (£200,000) and the Care Services Improvement Partnership (£65,000) – aims to encourage volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds, raise the profile of volunteering opportunities in the NHS, and spread best practice by highlighting where volunteering already successfully complements the work of NHS staff.
