The Continuity and Change in Volunteering project explores individual attitudes and behaviours towards volunteering, and individual views on the role and responsibility of the state towards provision for social need, across time (1981-2012).

The proposal was developed in partnership with the Mass Observation Archive.

This is a mixed-method research project, which draws on:

These sources allow exploration of relationships between voluntary activity and attitudes to questions such as redistribution or the proper role of the welfare state.

The project has been designed to provide a genuine mix of methods, bringing the analysis of these two data sources into dialogue with each other across the lifetime of the project, using an iterative analytical framework, so that questions and findings from each data source inform the questions being asked of the other data sources.
