The Government's Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) is inviting comments from the public and professionals about regulation concerning volunteer events.
These are one of three topics currently featured as part of its Focus on Enforcement initiative. "Help us identify where enforcement can be improved, reduced or done differently and to discover and celebrate where it works really well, so others can learn from it", states the BIS website.
Specifically the consultation covers "the sort of compliance and enforcement issues that you might come into contact with when planning and running an event to raise money for good cause".
So far, only three contributions have been made on volunteer events, covering the issues of small charities' raffles, proportionate examination of health and safety risks, and the role of local councils.
