Valuing Volunteer Management Skills

This report explores the skills gaps and development needs of people who manage volunteers and the volunteers they support in the voluntary sector.

The report is based on research conducted in the spring of 2010 which included a quantitative survey of 1,004 individuals who manage volunteers across the range of organisations in the voluntary sector, and ten biographical interviews with people who manage volunteers, to enable in-depth exploration of careers, skills and development needs.
