Welcome to the Ticking our Boxes website


Ticking our Boxes is a programme created by young volunteers about volunteering. We wanted to find out: Why policymakers love it? Why do people do it? What's great? What's bad? What do young people think about vetting and CRB checks? Why are some people not allowed to volunteer in the UK?


You can watch us on film telling you what we think about different volunteering issues, find out what we have to say and - most importantly - have your say by leaving a comment below our film and the issues we think need to be discussed. Your comments will appear instantaneously on the site. So click below and tell us what you think.

In November, the Ticking Our Boxes team went to Hull to talk to a group of young volunteers and volunteer leaders about what ticks their boxes.
