Social Responsibility at Royal Town Planning Institute

Investing in Volunteers

Collaboration for a Sustainable Future - A Strategy for Volunteer Engagement 2020-30

Volunteering is part of the DNA of the Institute and is a vital ingredient of RTPI membership. An active core of volunteers from across the UK, Ireland and across the world collectively contribute to the ongoing success of the Institute and it is testament to the RTPI’s value that 10% of our members directly support delivery of our strategic objectives and member services.

Our volunteers are active, engaged members who share our vision for the planning profession and ambitions for the RTPI; and who, through a combination of attitudes, thoughts, behaviours and actions, help to shape the success of the Institute by supporting the delivery of our activities for the benefit of the wider membership, our members’ communities, and the organisation in itself. They also, in the case of Planning Aid England, directly deliver services to the public.

We have published this strategy to provide our volunteers with a clear framework for their activities.  It aims to ensure they have the support they need and can make the most of our volunteering opportunities as part of their personal development.  We will also use the strategy to allow us to learn from their experiences and to show the value they add.  It is therefore a key foundation in delivering on our Corporate Strategy for 2020 -2030 and its ambitions to become the world’s leading professional planning body.
