Insight gathered from recent consultations with young people
across Wales and other key stakeholders has highlighted two key
1. The need to improve
and promote good practice in youth volunteering in Wales.
Specifically young people would like to be able to easily access
a range of engaging and meaningful social action and / or youth
volunteering opportunities. Young people want roles that fit around
their interests, aspirations and availability. It is important to
these young people that they feel trusted and supported as
2. The need to improve the use of
digital technology in the way in which the third sector
interacts with prospective and current young volunteers.
Specifically, young people would like to see the digital social
platforms of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram used more frequently
as a means to find out about volunteering, associated content and
to help them to understand the impact they can make as volunteers,
to themselves, and to the wider community.
The outcomes for the commissioned pieces of work are outlined in
the RfQ (Request for Quote) documents which are available to
download. The deadline for quotes to be submitted is the
30th January 2018
The funding for this project has been allocated from the
Welsh Government, Volunteering Wales Grants to focus on improving
youth engagement across the third sector in Wales.
