The latest news from NCVO

On 7 December we held a National Volunteering Forum (NVF) event on volunteering during crises. Over 100 organisations joined us as we heard from NCVO colleagues on findings from our research, and I explored our current policy and influencing priorities to support charities and volunteers to navigate the cost-of-living crisis.

Our colleague shared data from our UK Civil Society Almanac data to give us key insight into who volunteers, what activities they undertake, and how volunteer mobilisation has changed since the pandemic. We also explored the findings of our latest Time Well Spent report, on the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on volunteers. Our practical support team also shared a huge range of ways organisations can support their volunteers and staff through difficult circumstances.

We also explored the positive aspects of volunteering; the role volunteers play and the impact they have. Much of the desk research for the Time Well Spent report showed largely positive news around volunteering during the pandemic.
