Making Time

Making Time

Join In’s latest ground-breaking research looks at how behavioural science can persuade more people to give their time and volunteer, with a focus on sport.

Presented in partnership with BT↑ and leading social impact research consultancy Simetrica↑, the report reveals the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘how’ and most importantly the ‘why’ of volunteering.

The launch in Whitehall was led by Join In Chair Lord Charles Allen and Britain's most successful Paralympian, and Join In trustee, Tanni Grey-Thompson. Join In patron Eddie Izzard, leading economist and former Cabinet Secretary Lord Gus O’Donnell and Minister for Civil Society Rob Wilson also backed the launch.

This handout provides a summary of the findings from our extensive review and new regression analysis of UK data sets of both volunteering and sport volunteering. In addition we introduce GIVERS – a practical new tool for everyone with an interest in recruiting, managing and retaining volunteers both within sport and beyond it.
