Eurodiaconia Statement on Volunteering in social services in times of austerity, Eurodiaconia, July 2011

Summary:

Eurodiaconia has become extremely concerned about a current discourse that has emerged in response to the economic and financial crisis, namely that volunteering should be a means to cushion the impact of the financial crisis, especially in times of austerity measures and cuts in public spending. 2011 is the European Year of Volunteering, and whilst Eurodiaconia wants to use this Year to promote volunteering and recruit more volunteers, we want to raise awareness of the dangers of this discourse and why it could be harmful to European social and health care services and consequently European citizens.
