Resources for the Voluntary Sector

Article modified: Author:

VolResource aims to make it quick and easy to find useful information on anything to do with running a voluntary organisation (whether a community group, charity or other non-profit body).

This version of VolResource has started with copying material from the old site, and there may still be some internal links going there. We would appreciate your help in reviewing the content - we're always on the look-out for relevant new web links, redundant old ones, changes in advice sources, sector projects etc. Use the on-page comments to make a contribution, or add an Update piece for longer material. See About page for more.

To find what you want

... in the wide range of material specifically compiled for voluntary organisations, there are two main options -  the navigation menu above, and a full Articles index (Table of Contents). Some may prefer the 'Articles by Topic' grouping or a Simple Site Map. Note: as sample documents aren't on the nav bar, find them via the index or other routes.

Alternatively, the site search box is top right *, and a little below that are any suggestions for connected (tagged) articles ++. Further help is on the About page.

For a bit of an introduction to the purpose and approach of this site, see Background to the sector and effective organisations.

The latest resources and practical news of interest to those involved in charities etc. appear in our regular email newsletter.

* On small screens, the right-hand column will instead be towards the bottom of the page. ++ Tags are a basic replacement for the 'Follow the Trail' suggestions on the old version of VolResource.
