On Wednesday afternoon I attended the final meeting of the ‘Modernising Structures Action Group’ – one of six action groups established to follow-up the recommendations of the Commission on the Future of Volunteering. This group, chaired by Stephen Dunmore (former Chief Executive of the Big Lottery Fund) has been looking at ways of strengthening and supporting the volunteering infrastructure in England. We heard a presentation from Martin Simon, Executive Director of Time Banks UK, about ‘timebanking’ and the role that Volunteer Centres might play in relation to Time Banks. We also considered an analysis of the roles of ‘Volunteer Champions’ undertaken by The Red Foundation as part of the National Support Service Modernising Volunteering stream.
