CJS Focus on Volunteering - endorsed by CMA and SCRA. Freely available to view online on Monday 14 February.

This edition includes a very topical article from CMA on the Big Society. Pentland Hills Regional Park and Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park write about setting up and running voluntary rangers services, the Bat Conservation Trust has information about their out of hours helpline staffed entirely by volunteers while British Trust for Ornithology's Bird Atlas just wouldn't happen without their volunteer surveyors, find out how you can help both of these vital services. BTCV are celebrating their Heroic Volunteers and the WI write about how an organisation not typically thought of as involved with the environment makes a difference.

You'll also find hundreds of adverts for specific volunteer posts and volunteer projects in general. 27 pages in total

Also included are the Top Headlines from the past month and also details of the latest additions to the Classified directory.
Training Calendar for March AND April is 6 pages

Thanks to everyone who took part in our mini-survey. The results are in and the majority of people (61%) want to see events coming up in two month's time. So for this month only we're including two months of events, otherwise you'd miss the March diary. Next month we'll be back to normal and in the March edition you'll get the events occurring in May.
