Recent international volunteering research

A research officer at the Institute for Volunteering Research (part of NCVO) summarises some new research gleaned from attending the 11th International Society for Third Sector Research Conference in Germany recently.

Subjects include unmasking a hidden dynamism in the volunteer population, that you are more likely to volunteer if you are richer than those around you, and that most employer supported volunteers are already volunteering.
