Voluntary Work: Young People

Volume 705: debated on Wednesday 19 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What payments the government youth volunteering organisation v has made, or is contracted to make, to public relations consultants; and for what purposes. [HL6145]

In 2008-09 the Cabinet Office awarded a grant of £2.6 million for marketing to the independent youth volunteering charity v. The purpose of the grant is to promote youth volunteering, making it an accessible, attractive proposition to young people. V’s marketing activity drives young people to where they can discover opportunities to volunteer and their local v contact.

V has engaged an agency to develop and implement its ongoing communications activity including public relations. It is paid on a project by project basis.
