Ageing and Social Policy – A report for Volunteering in the Third Age

This report summarises the current environmental and policy context of volunteering; seeks to explore and analyse the impact this is having on the recruitment, retention and management of older volunteers; and examines the perceived likely impact of social change on future volunteering by people aged over fifty. Finally the report makes recommendations, based on this analysis, on what needs to be addressed in both policy and practice to provide a secure basis for the continuing engagement of older people in volunteering.
