We produced an evaluation report and resource of the Volunteering for Communities pilot project coordinated by Sporting Equals.
Our approach included a desk based review of existing research material regarding ethnic minority and emerging communities volunteering in sport. In addition a range of monitoring material was collected through the duration of the Volunteering for Communities project. The research review was supported by consultation with each of the volunteer centres involved in the project to seek more detail on experiences of engaging in the project.
The project concluded with the production of an evaluation report which considered the Volunteer Centres sporting experience, experiences of ethnic minorities and emerging communities, volunteer opportunities and potential continuation. Recommendations and a resource designed for use by Volunteer Centres and Sports Organisations were also produced. Both are available through Sporting Equals.
