Podcast series: Episode 1- Volunteering paused

Podcasts     All Locations     June 29 2021

We are delighted to launch the first episode in our podcast series titled ‘Volunteering paused’. Volunteering has played a pivotal role in the response to COVID-19 and while in some areas there has been a surge in volunteer activity, certain forms of volunteering have had to pause in line with the COVID restrictions. This podcast shines a light on how this pausing has impacted volunteers and organisations with a specific focus on nature and heritage, sport, youth and the arts.

Thanks to all contributors for sharing their experiences.
