Involving volunteers from underrepresented groups

Filiz Niyazi

Survey evidence suggests that young people, older people, unemployed people, disabled people and people from black and other minority ethnic communities are under represented as volunteers in mainstream organisations.

Research carried out by the National Centre for Volunteering found that some organisations have addressed the barriers that face potential volunteers from these groups and secured their involvement through the adoption of practical measures and a real commitment to equality of opportunity.
