The blog supports the Volunteer Charter and explains how Buckinghamshire Disability Service (BuDS) and the Bucks Legacy Board hosted our launch event in December 2014. Its great Community Impact Bucks are still supporting the charter, and are continuing to encourage other organisations to pledge. They suggest:
“Make your pledge today – stand up and be counted
That last sentence speaks for itself – so go on, disregard the irritations and inconveniences of 21st century life, and set some time aside in the next week to think about making your pledge to the Disability Volunteer Charter – and then go and sign up – let’s rally as a county and help boost the number of organisations that have pledged nationwide to 500 by December 2017.
They would love to hear from you when you have – please contact them with your stories – especially if you’re already involving volunteers with disabilities in your organisation: email@example.com.”
