National Strategy for Volunteering Council

The National Strategy for Volunteering is now in its first-year Establishment Phase. This phase lays the foundations for success over the National Strategy for Volunteering’s ten-year horizon. It will see engagement with stakeholders from across the volunteering to deliver four key items:

  • Three-Year Action Plan
  • Monitoring and Evaluation Framework
  • Governance Blueprint
  • Model for Shared Accountability for Implementation

As during the Development Phase, strategic oversight will be provided by an independent body: the National Strategy for Volunteering Council. The role of the Council is to ensure the National Strategy is progressed to a high standard and the project meets its objectives.
