Inclusive Volunteering

Research indicates that people who are at risk of experiencing exclusion can benefit from volunteering. We know, however, that many people face barriers to becoming a volunteer. As we start to consider how to support and encourage more inclusive volunteering, this session is an opportunity to share the challenges faced by volunteer managers in making volunteering accessible for all people.
