Abstract

Study examining whether the perception that volunteering adversely affects their benefits is a barrier to people on welfare benefits taking up volunteering. The aims of this Uk-wide survey were to provide a more quantitative analysis of the impact welfare benefits has on volunteering at a broader level, and to suggest how improvements could be made to enable more people on benefits to volunteer.
