Last year was a very hard year for the voluntary sector.
I heard how much the demand for services increased and how Voluntary Organisations managed to help some of the neediest people, often when other services gave up on them. I also heard really moving accounts of how people's life's have been turned round by volunteering and by the support provided here at VANL and other organisations. All this against a backdrop of great uncertainty about the future.
This year is probably not going to be much better! The doors have already closed on 2 of our local organisations, with another 2 to go imminently and a number of others who may not survive beyond the end of March. So much for the Big Society!
