Petition Seek continued participation in the European Solidarity Corps
The Government should seek continued full UK participation in the European Solidarity Corps, not only giving numerous British young people the chance to do a voluntary service in a European country, but also allowing British charities to benefit from the input of European young people.
The European Solidarity Corps (ESC), formerly known as European Voluntary Service, is an international volunteering programme by the European Commission for young people to go to another country to work for a non-profit cause. The ESC brings together young people to build a more inclusive society, supporting vulnerable people and responding to societal challenges. It offers an inspiring and empowering experience for young people who want to help, learn and develop.
