Race Equality Foundation have an upcoming webinar on the topic of ‘Community Contributions’

People who help out in their community – from everyday acts of neighbourliness to more formal volunteering roles – tend to be happier and to develop a better quality and quantity of relationships and sense of purpose in their lives. Those who are less well off or have health concerns are much less likely to be able to contribute their time and talents, especially through formal volunteering.

In this webinar they will explore the insights gathered on community contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic, what it means to have age-friendly and inclusive volunteering, and whole-system approaches to community-centred public health.

  • Chair: Patrick Vernon, Associate Director for Communities, Centre for Ageing Better
  • Rachel Monaghan, Programme Manager, Centre for Ageing Better: Guide to age-friendly and inclusive volunteering
  • Aideen Young, Evidence Manager, Centre for Ageing Better: Insights into community Contributions during COVID-19
