Volunteering England and Forestry Commission sign joint commitment
Friday, 03 February 2012
Volunteering England and the Forestry Commission have demonstrated their commitment to working together by signing a memorandum of understanding.
The memorandum (391Kb) [PDF] outlines the ways in which we will work together to empower individuals and communities to volunteer in the creation and management of forests and woodlands across England.
In addition to individual commitments, together we will
- build and maintain a mutual understanding of each other’s work;
- keep each other well informed of issues related to volunteering;
- define our working practices in the spirit of collaboration and partnership;
- strengthen volunteering in England by working in collaboration to support key aspects of the infrastructure for volunteering in England;
- provide good practice in volunteer management; and
- empower people to have the confidence and skills to try new activities.
