Event Details

The Association of Guernsey Charities, together with the Lloyds Bank Foundation for the Channel Islands, has arranged this unique event featuring presentations on two high-level national reports.  The Value of Small is an in-depth report into the distinctive contribution, value, and experience of small and medium-sized charities.  Time Well Spent is the first in a series of major reports into the volunteer experience, and aims to better understand the needs and benefits of a healthy voluntary sector.


The Power of our Voluntary Sector

 

Wednesday 25 September 2019.  Starting 1900 (doors open 1815).
The Princess Royal Centre for the Performing Arts

 

1.       Introduction and opening address

Presented by:  Malcolm Woodhams,
Chairman, Association of Guernsey Charities

2.     The Value of Small

Presented by:  Alex Van Vliet,
Research and Learning Manager, Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales

In-depth research into the distinctive contribution, value and experiences of small and medium-sized charities in England and Wales.

This research shows that smaller local charities combine three distinctive features in how they support people and communities, which sets them apart from both public-sector providers or larger charities:

i)       who smaller charities serve and what they do;
ii)      how smaller charities work;
iii)     the role smaller charities play in their communities.

The Value of Small was commissioned by Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales and conducted by an independent research team comprising the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR) at Sheffield Hallam University; the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) and the Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership at the Open University.

3.     Time Well Spent

Presented by:  Karl Wilding,
Director of Public Policy and Volunteering, National Council for Voluntary Organisations

Time Well Spent is a major new report into the volunteering experience published by NCVO in January 2019.  The survey focuses on volunteering through groups, clubs and organisations and includes data on recent volunteers, but also lapsed volunteers and non-volunteers.  The aims of the survey were to:

1.   gain a rounder view of the different ways people get involved

2.   look at how volunteering fits into people’s lives and the impact it has on them

3.   understand people’s experiences across the volunteer journey

4.   consider what a quality volunteer experience looks like

5.   explore how to better engage potential volunteers.
