An army of full-time adult volunteers is providing an essential, unpaid lifeline to public services such as health, social services and education, according to a new report published today.
More than 11,000 volunteers have committed the equivalent of 6,000 years of their time through the UK's largest volunteering and training charity, CSV, it claimed today.
The report showed the extent of volunteer support for young offenders, homeless people, adults with learning difficulties and carers. "
