The Commission on Voluntary Sector and Ageing has issued a new discussion paper on the future of volunteering in an ageing society. The Guardian has an article from the chief executive of New Philanthropy Capital, at http://www.theguardian.com/voluntary-sector-network/2014/aug/15/can-charities-keep-attracting-ageing-population, which starts:
