Seven Cities of Service launch in the UK

“Cities of Service is about helping to funnel the passion of local volunteers into areas most in need of support in their own communities.” Over the next 18 months Barnsley, Bristol, Kirklees, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Swindon, and Telford and Wrekin will use their status as Cities of Service to encourage local volunteers to play their part in tackling some of the most pressing issues in their cities – replicating the highly successful US model founded by the former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg.
