This study is based on data collected from care home providers, activity organisers, volunteer providers and a review of academic and other literature.
‘Rose Heatley’s report usefully reviews current attitudes to volunteering in homes and explores the potential contribution that volunteers could make. Care home managers, volunteer bureaux and activity organisers in homes would do well to read it.’ Dr Gillian Dalley, Chief Executive, The Relatives & Residents Association.
'A really excellent piece of work.' Dr Justin Davis-Smith, Chief Executive, Volunteering England.
