Inspiring Edinburgh’s Volunteers
The Council is one of the partners who have created the city's volunteering strategy; Inspiring Edinburgh's Volunteers - 2012 to 2017. You can download the strategy from the Edinburgh Compact website.
We support volunteering in a number of ways and recognise the immense value that volunteers add to the social fabric of our city.
As the city's Volunteering Ambassador, the Lord Provost takes part in key initiatives to promote volunteering. He is also keen to celebrate the work of volunteers and the services that would not exist but for their efforts.
