2018 Voluntary Sector and Volunteering Research Conference

6-7 September, NCVO Conference Suite, London, UK

Programme and bookings

*Early bird places availableuntil 12 July*

Book your place at the leading UK-based interdisciplinary research conference on the voluntary sector and volunteering.

Organised by NCVO and the Voluntary Sector Studies Network (VSSN), the conference provides a unique opportunity for academics, policy makers and practitioners from the UK and further afield to come together to share and discuss research that addresses the conference theme and the broader issues facing the voluntary sector and volunteering at this time.

I'm not a researcher – is it for me?

Whether you're involved with a charity or other voluntary organisation, or are a policy maker, you'll find the sessions fascinating and a really useful source of new ideas.

What will I hear about?

Our confirmed keynote speaker is Baroness Onora O'Neill. Onora will be speaking on the subject of: Trust, Transparency and Accountability of Charities and Voluntary Organisations: Challenges for Policy, Practice and Research.

There's also a packed programme of sessions covering...

  • Civil society, democracy and grassroots voluntary action
  • Volunteering, participation and social action
  • Advances in theory and methods
  • Resourcing the sector: funding, fundraising, philanthropy and social investment
  • Organisational management and governance, including law and regulation
  • Historical perspectives on the voluntary sector and voluntary action
  • Sectoral boundaries: private-voluntary-public sector
  • Understanding, measuring and valuing outcomes and impact

Full programme and online booking

We hope to see you there.
