What are we interested in?

There are a number of areas we're interested in exploring through our investment in volunteering

We’d encourage you to consider how your project may contribute to the following:

  • Partnerships and collaborations – we’re keen to test what happens when different types of organisations collaborate creatively, and to enable smaller organisations to work together to multiply their impact
  • Messaging and communications – how can these be adapted to reach different audiences?
  • Rewarding volunteers – we want to understand how best to reward and recognise the contribution of volunteers and motivate people to give their time
  • Challenging myths and misconceptions – we’re keen to show that sports volunteering isn’t just about membership of sports clubs and sporty people
  • Putting the volunteer at the heart of all thinking and planning.

More details on each of these areas will be available in our forthcoming investment guide.
