Event details

Covid-19 has transformed the landscape of voluntary action. Across the four nations, our research has sought to understand the impact of the pandemic, what is needed from the sector and government to support national recovery. Also, how we can prepare for future crises.

We invite you to join us to:
  • hear what has been learnt through our Mobilising Voluntary Action research
  • reflect on your experiences of the last 18 months and the impact government policy had on your volunteers and organisation
  • share your experiences of the last 18 months with peers and our researchers
  • discuss how voluntary action can be supported going forward and how we can help
