Peter Beresford

On 26 October 2021, Shaping Our Lives and the Institute for Volunteering Research co-hosted an online seminar about Volunteering and Ideology.

In this blog post, Peter Beresford, chair of the event, highlights some of the key discussions that took place around volunteering – how do people understand and define volunteering, and what is its impact on volunteers and those they work with.

The blog post also contains a link to the opening statements of the panellists recorded as short videos.
