Volunteering: a community response to crisis

20 Jun 2022


60 minutes

Volunteering has long defined communities’ responses to a crisis. The devastating scale and frequency of crises we’ve faced recently has put a spotlight on voluntary action – its importance, impact and sustainability. From Storm Dennis, through the Covid-19 pandemic, to welcoming refugees from Afghanistan and Ukraine, we are trying to answer the questions of what motivates people to volunteer at a time of crisis, what the impact of recent significant spikes in volunteering activity has been on the sector, and will there be any long-term effects? Join us for an overview with John Drury, Professor of Social Psychology at University of Sussex and Natalie Zhivkova, Volunteering Policy Officer at WCVA.
