Volunteering for all: measuring the health and wellbeing benefits.
- We all know the great impact volunteering makes, but how do we measure the benefits?
- Can we quantify the health and wellbeing advantages of a particular volunteer programme?
Join us to hear the results of key studies in this area, and how volunteer managers make the most effective use of this knowledge!
This event will address various aspects of the volunteer journey from the volunteer managers perspective, with a particular focus on measuring the health and wellbeing benefits for everyone involved: the volunteers; the programme managers and volunteer leaders; the organisation; the end users and clients.
We will hear the results of some key work into volunteer motivation and behaviour, including: assessing the volunteering habits of certain groups; attracting and working with younger volunteers and families; two different assessments of wellbeing.
