- What has been the impact of volunteering during Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture?
- Has volunteering affected City Hosts’ sense of wellbeing and/or civic pride?
- What should organisers of future events consider when involving volunteers?
The seminar took place at the Coventry Telegraph Hotel on 2 November 2022.
This focus study worked with people who volunteered to become City Hosts to support the UK CoC 2021 programme. It considered how their involvement might have affected their wellbeing and levels of civic pride.
How and to what extent has the City Hosts’ volunteering programme impacted on those taking part, particularly in terms of subjective wellbeing and civic pride?
A report is available on the Volunteering, Wellbeing and Civic Pride focus study page that provides an overview of findings and conclusions.
The event was designed for a range of stakeholders including City Hosts, practitioners, academics, students, local administrators, funders, organisers of events that involve volunteers and members of the public.
