Giving Time

Giving Time research project - what motivates people to contribute to the public good on a voluntary basis?

Today is the launch of the Giving Time website.

Giving Time is a research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, UK in collaboration with researchers at a number UK universities and Nesta.

The project is co-ordinated by Professor Peter John and Dr. Beth Carley (University College London), Professor Gerry Stoker and Mr. Matt Ryan (University of Southampton), Professor Oliver James and Dr. Alice Moseley (University of Exeter) and Dr. Liz Richardson (University of Manchester) with help from administrative staff and students at these universities and the University of Plymouth and University of Salford.

They have teamed up with the university's volunteering service unit at each of the participating universities to help make it easier for students to be aware of all the opportunities available to volunteer in many different ways in their areas.
