Youth project to help shape volunteering in Bradford district and Craven
A new project has been setup for young people to shape the future of volunteering opportunities in healthcare.
Setup by the three NHS Bradford district and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), the youth participation project will explore how the local NHS can make it easier for young people to get into volunteering. It also aims to give more young people in our area the chance to volunteer and develop valuable skills for the future.
The project was launched after the CCGs heard about the difficulties young people face in getting into volunteering role in the NHS.
Local young people are leading the project which will focus on what people want to get out of volunteering, how volunteering opportunities can be better promoted, the type of roles that people want to volunteer for and how the process can be made easier.
