  • Introduction There has been an increased emphasis by Government in recent years on the role that volunteering can play to help deliver key public policy agendas. Volunteer centres support organisations and individuals to improve the number and quality of volunteer opportunities. In order to provide professional and high quality services they need long term, sustained, predictable, and reliable core funding. Setting the level of that funding has so far been left to the discretion of individual local authorities and other funders with no guidelines as to how to determine the cost of services required for volunteer centres to operate effectively. Volunteering England has identified six core functions that volunteer centres perform in providing volunteering infrastructure1: brokerage; marketing volunteering; good practice development; developing volunteering opportunities; policy response and campaigning; and strategic development of volunteering. Volunteer centres are configured in different ways to deliver these, with some integrated with councils for voluntary service and some delivering direct services using volunteers as well.
