Resources Bank

The Volunteering Action Plan aims to attract more volunteers to the youth work sector and to improve support and development opportunities for youth work volunteers.

The Resources Bank is a searchable bank of information, resources and training used by the voluntary youth work sector.  Resources are classified using the stages of the Volunteer Life Cycle, and include a mix of online, downloadable and printed materials, many of which are available free.

The Resources Bank aims to encourage better sharing and use of existing resources which different organisations have developed. The resources being developed through the National Voluntary Organisations Support Fund have been highlighted as a way to start developing more transferable resources that can be used more widely across the voluntary youth work sector.
