We predicted that volunteering from home would become as commonplace as working from home. Though this prediction has not been realised, one thing has become clear, that “flexible volunteering is essential for the survival” of the sector.

The sector will have to make it as easy as possible for people to fit volunteering in with their lifestyles."
