Don’t overlook issues on older volunteers

On NCVO’s slightly redesigned web pages, ‘Older volunteers, resilience and why we shouldn’t be complacent‘.

The lead-in says “Older volunteers don’t seem to be affected by economic austerity as much as we might think – but as changes to pension and retirement age come into effect, it’s no time to be complacent about this highly active group of individuals.” The article partly draws on a recent event which explored volunteering by older people in relation to economic austerity.
