National charity Community Service Volunteers (CSV) is asking people to make a difference in their community over the festive period.
Following the success of its ‘Make a Difference – Get Inspired’ campaign which reached over 7 million people, CSV has launched ‘The 12 Volunteering Days of Christmas’.
From carol singing to odd jobs, it’s hoped the 12 volunteering ideas will inspire even the busiest of people to make a difference in their local community.
CSV is supporting the Campaign for Youth Social Action’s goal of doubling the number of young people participating in social action to over 50% by 2020.
We are committing to involve more young people in playing an active role in building stronger, safer communities through high quality social action that benefits them and society as a whole.
Specifically, we are pledging to involve 380 young people in social action in Dover and Canterbury over the next two years.
20 UK charities are now better able to measure their achievements thanks to a Community Service Volunteers (CSV) and Coalition for Efficiency (CfE) programme aimed at improving charitable services through better impact measurement.
The “Measuring the Good” programme, funded by Esmée Fairbairn and the Garfield Weston Foundation, provided 20 charities with structured, facilitative support from senior volunteers from the private and public sector to help the charities focus on their mission and improve their process of impact measurement.
