This research bulletin explores the ways in which volunteers are supported and managed, it compares the experience of regular and occasional volunteers. Regular volunteers are those carrying out formal volunteering activities at least once a month. Occasional volunteers are those carrying out volunteering activities less frequently than once a month and include episodic or one-off volunteers. This bulletin also looks at differences in the management of volunteers according to the types of activities they undertake.
