  • What is the Pathways through Participation project?

    It is a joint research project being led by NCVO in partnership with the Institute for Volunteering Research (IVR) and Involve. It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund through its Research Grants programme. It started in April 2009 and will last 2.5 years.
    What are we exploring?

    The project aims to explore how and why people get involved and stay involved in different forms of participation over the course of their lives. Participation means many things to many different people. The project will look at participation in a very broad sense and consider the act of taking part in a wide range of social or civic activities.
