The Cabinet Office has released a new guide to help those looking to organise a voluntary or community event. Voluntary and community events are a crucial part of everyday life and help encourage people to play a more active part in society.
They may celebrate a particular occasion, raise funds for a good cause or simply bring people in a community closer together.
The Can Do guide, which the Sport and Recreation Alliance and many of its members fed into, will help facilitate these events and offers advice on:
– any licences or permissions you may need
– how to keep volunteers and participants safe
– food safety
– road closures
