The Road to Recovery Mini Expo
‘Expos’ are about working together with sector leaders, volunteer involving organisations, volunteers and the Scottish Government to share research and insight on key issues affecting volunteering – it’s about ‘Evidence into Action’.
In June 2020 we hosted ‘What’s changed: Now and in the future?’ which provided insights on the impact of COVID-19 during the first lockdown. See the presentations and videos here.
A year later we reflect back on what we have learned and how this can help inform the ‘Road to Recovery’. This Expo is a key output of the ‘Mobilising UK Voluntary Action’ research study funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council.
