As part of the NHS 70th birthday celebrations for the NHS, NHS England is working with partners to encourage the development of volunteering, with a particular focus on the NHS70 Youth Volunteering Campaign.
At the end of last year you may have seen Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, National Medical Director of NHSE, invite NHS Trusts and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) organisations to join the NHS70 Youth Volunteering Campaign.
The campaign will support trusts and the voluntary sector to further develop youth volunteering, including signposting to the resources available and showcasing innovative work across the country.
In support of the campaign NHS England are running a series of interactive webinars between January and May 2018.
