Research into 'the impact of volunteering in later life'

18 October 2018

The Big Lottery Fund, ‘Accelerating Ideas’, is all about trying out innovative ways of working. 

The Abbeyfield Society, is an older persons housing charity who believe in growing older well. 

Alongside NCVO, our delivery partner, we developed a bid to research the impact of volunteering in later life – over 75 years old – when living in a residential care setting in the UK

This booklet has been developed to share some of the practical learning gleaned from residents, staff and volunteers who took part in the two year project. It aims to support those interested in growing their own volunteering projects for people in later life. We hope you find it useful.
