Front cover of a book titled 'All Together: A Personal Experience of International Voluntary work camp'. The book is Robert Davies's personal account of participating in International Voluntary Service work camps from 1960 to 1964. It features a collection of diary extracts during this period, accompanied with present-day commentary, all written by Robert Davies.

Robert Davies, who actively volunteered with VCS, UNA, and many other organisations, is currently VCS Honorary President. He founded Voluntary Community Service (VCS) in Cardiff in October 1964. The organisation's main aim, as stated in its constitution, is to promote any charitable purposes, advancement of education, and relief of poverty, distress, and sickness in the City of Cardiff. Originally VCS co-ordinated a team of volunteers involved in activities such as helping elderly people with gardening and decorating, running summer ‘work camps’ for children and young people. Its mission today is to enable people who are most disadvantaged to engage with rewarding volunteering opportunities, facilitating their personal development and employment prospects.
