This book draws on an innovative longitudinal study of individual understandings of and attitudes toward volunteering and voluntary organizations, combined with analyses of their group's own reporting of how their volunteers approach their roles and work. The rich data,previously unanalyzed, provide a unique commentary on attitudes to voluntary effort and to the appropriate balance between statutory responsibility and community initiative in the voluntary sector.
 
Review Quotes
Colin Rochester, London School of Economics
“An important and innovative contribution to understanding how and why people engage in voluntary activity; how important they feel it is in their lives; and the ways in which it contributes to the wider community.”
