VOLUNTEERING - A SUBJECT OF INTEREST ON THE NATIONAL PUBLIC AGENDA
In 2014, the most recent updates of the legal framework regarding volunteering in Romania were made, by creating the Volunteering Law no. 78/2014, as a result of the efforts of the Federation VOLUME - Federation of Organizations Supporting the Development of Volunteering in Romania and its partners.
The legislative approach was based on extensive consultation with organizations working with volunteers and had a positive impact on the volunteering sector, by increasing the quality of volunteering programs, as well as by increasing their visibility and recognition.
CONSOLIDATING THE ROMANIAN VOLUNTEERING MOVEMENT
The Coalition aims to strengthen the volunteer movement in Romania in order to stimulate civic involvement and awareness, by taking steps to complete the Volunteering Law no. 78/2014 with methodological norms, for the correct, unitary and transparent application of the legislative provisions.
- By taking steps to complete the Volunteering Law no. 78/2014 with methodological norms
- By developing an online platform which contains information and working models.
- By organizing training events for the non-governmental organisations active in the field of volunteering – webinars, training sessions, national level consultations, an international conference on advocacy topics.
The project runs for two years (march 2021 – february 2023) and it involves the organizations working with volunteers, local and national decision makers and volunteers.
The Coalition for Volunteering project is developed by the Bethany Social Services Foundation (Fundația Serviciilor Sociale Bethany), in partnership with the Community Support Foundation (Fundația de Sprijin Comunitar), Pro Vobis - National Volunteer Resource Center (Pro Vobis – Centrul Național de Resurse pentru Voluntariat), Cluj-Napoca Volunteer Center (Centrul de Voluntariat Cluj-Napoca) and Norges Frivilligsentraler and it benefits from a 248.990 Euro funding through the Active Citizens Fund România, founded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the 2014-2021 EEA Grants.
