    The Plunkett Foundation Event on volunteer recruitment and engagement

    A national charity that helps communities to take control of their challenges and overcome them through co-operation. The charity supports people, predominantly in rural areas, to set up and run life-changing community co-operatives; enterprises that are owned and run democratically by large numbers of people in their community. 

    It also helps people to tackle a range of issues such isolationloneliness and poverty, and come in many forms including shops, cafes, pubs and land-based initiatives, and anything in between.
