NCVO launch research in to diversity and volunteering

NCVO launch research in to diversity and volunteering

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) are launching a series of reseach project looking in to volunteering and diversity throughout 2020.

The first stage (spring 2020) will look at the perspective of organisations by:

  • Reviewing existing evidence
  • Getting feedback from organisations about what they’re doing and their experiences to date
  • Conducting ‘expert’ interviews
  • Developing case examples.

The purpose of this is to understand what diversity means to volunteer-involving organisations, and explore their aims, priorities and experiences in this area.

The second stage (summer/autumn 2020) will take a more focused approach, informed by what stakeholders have said they’d like the NCVO to prioritise during the first stage. Examples could be the non-volunteer perspective (such as what stops certain groups from getting involved in volunteering), or a particular area of diversity, such as volunteering and disability.

An important aspect of the research is that the NCVO want to hear from volunteer-involving organisations about what they’re doing, and their experiences. If you’re interested in sharing your perspective and/or want to be kept informed about the research, fill out this short form.

Questions about any of the series of reports planned can be sent by email to amy.mcgarvey@ncvo.org.uk

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
