Tower Hamlets Volunteering Compact
In 2007 and 2008 we have campaigned to produce the Tower Hamlets Volunteering Compact. The compact brought together the voluntary sector, the private sector and the public sector in Tower Hamlets to outline a strategy and vision for volunteering in Tower Hamlets. The final aim of the compact is to increase the amount of volunteering activity and numbers of people volunteering in Tower Hamlets.
VCTH commissioned the Tower Hamlets Volunteering Research Project, to produce information on volunteering at a local level and to explore quality and scope of volunteering in Tower Hamlets. 29% of Tower Hamlets residents volunteer, contributing £51,939,595 to our local economy.
