More than five million people in Bavaria volunteer. Whether it’s a volunteer fire brigade or a sports club, it’s hard to imagine Bavaria without volunteer work. And yet there are problems. Many are committed, but fewer and fewer are willing to make a long-term commitment. The consequences are problems with young people in the fire brigade, mountain rescue service and other social associations.

The consequences are problems with young people in the fire brigade, mountain rescue service and other social associations. The frequent deployments are increasingly pushing the firefighters to their limits. With it
not enough: time and again, emergency services are insulted, spat on or threatened and hindered in action. Therefore, the action alliance “Let rescue” calls for more respect for the work of paramedics, emergency doctors and police officers.

Commitment to food banks is also declining. There are currently 947 food banks nationwide, where a good 60,000 volunteers have worked around 20 million hours this year. For football legend Paul Breitner, who has been involved with the Münchner Tafel for years, one thing is certain: “Politics have let the needy down!” More and more people are dependent on the support of helpers.

In Wasserburg am Inn, too, many people are committed to social cohesion every day. On the day of volunteering, CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer has now proposed that volunteer work be given more consideration in the application process. Others are calling for legal regulations that free clubs and non-profit organizations from excessive bureaucracy.

Is volunteering in the Free State in danger? Does politics have to act and if so, how? Why is the appreciation for our helpers falling? And what responsibility does each individual bear?

Discuss this at “jetzt red i“ Citizens ncluding with the President of the Bavarian State Parliament Ilse Aigner and Football legend and table helper Paul Breitner.
