The Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership (CVSL) was again represented at the annual Voluntary Sector and Volunteering Research (VSVR) Conference which took place entirely online this year.

Director Carol Jacklin-Jarvis and Lecturer Daniel Haslam presented their new project investigating the response of local infrastructure organisations to Covid-19. The project builds on the positive relationships the centre has with practitioners, to focus on an aspect of the voluntary sector that can be overlooked in favour of service delivery and volunteering.

PhD student Sally Vivyan also presented a paper (45mins 10 secs in) on international grant-making during Covid-19.

The theme of the conference this year was: voluntary sector responses to and recovery from Covid-19 and the other presentations give a rich picture of ongoing work into this area, including: communities and mutual aid groups, organisational responses, volunteering experiences, and what we can learn from international disaster relief efforts. There was also a great mixture of contributions from both academics and practitioners.
