Leadership Case for Volunteering
16th March 2021
Back in January 2020, as part of year 1 of the IAV programme, we worked with a group of ICS/STP leaders to co-produce this document: 'Mainstreaming volunteering: a Leadership Case'. The link to download the document is at the bottom of this article.
The aim of the document is to help ICSs/STPs see the potential for involving volunteering in their strategic plans, and includes evidence we've compiled showing how volunteering initiatives out in communities and across the patient pathway help address pressures on health services.
Note: this document was produced prior to the COVID19 pandemic. We aim to update the document in year 2 of the IAV programme to set the leadership case in the current context, and update the evidence base.
