Volunteering to employability

BARN has recently started a new "Volunteering to Employability" project where it aims to help job seekers find volunteering placements that will help them gain experience and skills for the future.

Both BARN and the Job Centre are making it very clear that there is absolutely no obligation to volunteer in order to continue receiving benefits.  

The scheme will make sure that people understand the positive impacts of volunteering and making the decision of their own free will.  BARN will then work with each person more closely to identify their volunteering interests and preferences in order to match them with a suitable opportunity.
