Volunteering Research Papers Initiative Round 2 Launch

Join us for the second round of releases from the Volunteering Research Papers Initiative, part of the development of the National Strategy for Volunteering. An initiative of the National Strategy for Volunteering Research Working Group, the Volunteering Research Papers summarise important research on volunteering and outline key insights for policy and practice. These insights will feed directly into the new National Strategy for Volunteering.

Following the launch of the Initiative in September, this second round of publications includes seven papers, each of which addresses a key area of research on volunteering.

The launch event will be introduced by the Chair of the National Strategy for Volunteering Research Working Group, Professor Melanie Oppenheimer, and will include a series of brief presentations in which some of our contributing authors will highlight the findings and policy and practice implications of their research.
