Online survey of 16-25 year-olds gathers views on health volunteering

  • Comment

An online survey to find out what 16 to 25-year-olds in England feel about volunteering in the health sector has been launched by volunteering charity Attend

The research, which is supported by youth volunteering charity V, hopes to find out what young people think about volunteering in hospitals and social care, and what stops others from giving their time in this way.

Attend hopes to survey 1000 16 to 25-year-olds by mid-May and will use the research to design better volunteering opportunities for young people.

A number of focus groups that give a deeper insight into young people’s attitudes will also be run alongside the online survey.

Chief Executive of Attend, David Wood, says: ‘Year by year we are seeing an increase in the number of young people coming to us to give their time. It is vital that we can give them volunteering opportunities that not only benefit the patient or the wider community but that the young person enjoys and will encourage them to volunteer again in the future.’
