One of the major activities of the International Federation is to support its members in Capacity Building. Part of this includes the development of better structures to recruit and support volunteers in meeting the needs of vulnerable people.

With this in mind, there is a dedicated section of the Federation web site which aims to provide resources for those involved in volunteering development and volunteer management.
