CLIF impact project: Community learning and volunteering
About This Publication
This report presents the findings of work to identify the impact of community learning on volunteering, undertaken as part of CLIF. The evidence gathered shows how learning and volunteering are complementary activities, which together can produce opportunities and benefits that are greater than the sum of the parts; from modest amounts of investment, significant outcomes have been realised for learners, families and communities.
This report will be of particular interest to national and local policy makers and commissioners of public services. Community learning providers in local authorities, colleges and third sector organisations will also find the report helpful in supporting their work to develop local planning, funding and delivery partnerships.
The report is one of a series of six thematic papers demonstrating the contribution of community learning to key policy areas produced by NIACE. See also:
