It follows a series of events held last year which explored the barriers to disabled people who want to volunteer including such issues as transport and attitudes towards disabled people.

The Charter was officially launched at University College of Technology, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire on Friday 5th December, International day of volunteering.
