Volunteer Wellbeing: what works and who benefits?
Volunteers offer invaluable support, but how can volunteering help support the wellbeing of volunteers themselves?
There is a growing body of research on the links between volunteering and wellbeing, and the What Works Centre for Wellbeing has produced a Volunteer Wellbeing review to bring the most relevant studies together in one place. The review focuses on the experience of adult formal volunteers, and looks at the key factors involved in improving wellbeing through volunteering.
