    I am already an active volunteer and enjoy helping people/places. The biggest issue seems to be funding and the piecemeal unplanned and disconnected way finders/councils etc link funding with outcomes but do not use measures that reduce waste/duplication/unnecessary expenses drifting out of our area g new project needs new pc/printer/desk and yet the project that just ended trashed their assets as not able to pass along??? If 10% of funding goes straight out for desk etc it’s leaving the area right away!
    Let’s try and use what we have (an asset register is a good way to start) let’s not bloat the profits of companies that don’t pay their share of taxes.
    Other barriers include: poverty, transport, language/information no central sources of quality info (library’s etc need to be more than a book bank) platforms on it to share/learn and inspire!
