Ticking our Boxes

Volunteering is now officially “good”, but why? This short documentary was created by and features volunteers, who together examine all aspects of volunteering in the UK today. Why do people do it? What do they get out of it? What’s great? What’s loathsome? What do young people think about vetting and CRB checks? Why are some people not allowed to volunteer in the UK? From up-front interviews to personal stories and expert evidence, this is an investigative film made by volunteers who have questioned, probed and challenged a whole host of issues surrounding Britain’s new “culture of volunteering”.
