New and Noted

New December 2013 - the VolResource #volsec reboot. Taking this website's content and giving it a 'social media' twist and a design makeover at the same time. You can add comments to articles, send in your own fuller Updates, or even become a page editor. The original VolResource site will continue to exist for the foreseeable future, but without much in the way of updating (mainly the occasional removal of redundant material/broken links).

Our CharityBlog social media site is using Storify to round-up relevant Twitter posts (tweets). Please check it out and give us your views and suggestions. CharityBlog still has a useful social media links list, by and for the voluntary sector, or aimed at the general public by charities/campaigns.

Old news, from both VolResource and VoluntaryNews, now resides on its own News Archive site. Voluntary News has the current items.

We value feedback - whether comments, additions, amendments or just saying hallo. We want to continue to improve this resource for the voluntary sector, and your thoughts can help. See our Response Form for how to get in touch.
