"Designed as a practical resource for those already offering volunteering opportunities for young people in health and social care settings, as well of those thinking of involving young people, we hope this toolkit will help promote opportunities for young volunteers and secure an increase in both the number and range of these. But more importantly we hope this toolkit will help to embed social action and volunteering in the everyday lives of young people and improve the health and wellbeing of everyone.” [OONAGH AITKEN CEO of Volunteering Matters]
