Do you currently have access to paid Volunteering Leave?

15 April 2015

One of the pledges in the recently published Conservative Manifesto is to give those who work for a big company and the public sector a new workplace entitlement to Volunteering Leave for three days a year, on full pay. Please complete our quick poll.

The Conservative Party Manifesto 2015 states:

“We will help you volunteer and support action to help the vulnerable

We will support the Prince of Wales’ Step Up To Serve initiative, encouraging young people to serve in their community. And we will make volunteering for three days a year a workplace entitlement for people working in large companies and the public sector. People could, for example, volunteer for a local charity or serve as a school governor…running foodbanks, helping the homeless…”

The CIPP would be interested to know what impact the introduction of a workplace entitlement to Volunteering Leave for three days a year, on full pay, may have on payroll and employers.

Please take a moment to complete our quick poll which asks ‘Do you currently have access to paid volunteering leave?’. The poll is located on the bottom right of the CIPP’s home page.
