Volunteer recruitment a growing concern for small charities, research suggests 

Small local charities are increasingly concerned about volunteer recruitment, according to newly published research.

The NAVCA-commissioned research, based on a survey and interviews with local infrastructure bodies, reported that recruiting and managing staff and volunteers had become bigger issues for small charities over the past year.

However, NAVCA members reported a “reasonably positive” financial situation compared to 12 months earlier.
