Although I generally feel strongly that public services should be provided by local government, I think that volunteering has always added a really positive dimension to delivering services. I am not sure that Torfaen taps into the potential here, unless I have missed something. So perhaps advertise volunteering opportunities in the weekly bulletin?
Why the contribution is important
Older people, unemployed people, most people, can benefit the community with some volunteering. It also gives volunteers a purpose and contributes to good mental health. Helping others is definitely an uplifting experience. Win win.
