Volunteering England supports HSE's Risk Management campaign
The national volunteering development agency in England is calling for excessive risk management to be challenged as it is stopping potential volunteers coming forward. Volunteering England has commissioned research 'On the Safe Side', that revealed that over one million volunteers have considered stopping volunteering through fear of legal action. In response Volunteering England has launched a 'Risk Toolkit' for volunteer-involving organisations.
