Voluntary service and its meaning in social work
Languages of publication
The intensity of the development of voluntary service will be in the future a road on which the main aims of social work will be realized by helping people in need. A series of tax reliefs and exemptions will be mainly the consequence of connecting this type of activity with business. A system created in this way will allow to help transfer a stream of money which will build an essential pillar for the social activity. Costs borne by voluntary service were lower and still will be lower than costs of strictly institutionalised organisations. Moreover, this primal idea, for which above mentioned voluntary service was set up, will be retained. One cannot also exclude such a situation when voluntary service makes up an alternative form of social activity for many people. Because for them the political activity which was discredited many times is not possible to accept. The more often a political scene will be the arena which will be losing credibility and confidence, the more often and wider will develop nongovernmental patterns of social activity including voluntary ones at every level of the organization of society. Social structures have not worked out any different alternative and it is necessary to suppose that they will never work it out. The lack of social activity, and at the same time a lack of development of voluntary service as an alternative for strongly formalised solutions is threatened with self-destruction of social structures, and in the consequence dismantling of democratic systems as a result of a decline in their efficiency.
