Junior Volunteering Toolkit
This toolkit will enable other Trusts to help set up and develop their own Junior Volunteering projects (for those aged 10-16).
The Junior Volunteering programme developed at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, is designed to provide a ‘triple benefit’: to individuals, communities, and patients, families and staff.
