Research Brief - The Strength of Voluntary Projects

The Sharing our Strength Conference identified a need to identify the essential characteristics of projects which volunteers and community groups are equipped to address.  Projects which strengthen their communities and ideally address the greatest need within them which is beyond the reach of statutory provision.

We are looking for the things which characterise a type of work which can succeed, sustainably, in many communities (not necessarily defined by geography) and be effectively described, initiated and evaluated in terms of social value to enable a resurgence of voluntary energy to flow in Worcestershire.

We are inviting researchers who have some knowledge of the area and experience of this sort of project to submit an application by Friday 7th April.2017.

Details of the brief can be downloaded here.
