VolResource aims to make it quick and easy to find useful information on anything to do with running a voluntary organisation (whether community group, charity or other non-profit body), across the UK.
We’re always on the look-out for relevant web links to add, redundant old ones to remove, additional practical resources, changes in advice sources, new sector projects, etc. We would appreciate your help in reviewing the content. You can use the comments facility where available, drop us a note via the contact form or add an Update piece for longer material. See About page for more.
Our weekly email newsletter has been retired – it carried the latest resources and practical news of interest to those involved in third sector organisations.
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 an annotated Articles Index (Table of Contents). There is also a Simple Site Map, with a couple of other options. Note: not all sample documents appear on the main menu.
Alternatively, the site search box is top right (on smaller screens, see bottom of the page instead). Almost all articles will have suggestions for connected (tagged) content at the end, just after the sharing buttons. 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. If lost for where to start, how about key sector information sites page?
