2.  What can Volunteer Nelson/other organisations/the wider sector do to support Younger Volunteers/ Youth Volunteer Initiatives?
3.  What are the barriers and incentives for young people to engage with volunteering opportunities? What does a successful Youth Volunteering programme or project look like ?
