This article uses a black voluntary organisation, the Black Justice Project, as an example to identify and explain areas of good practice in the recruitment and retention of black volunteers. The research findings are compared and contrasted with those of previous studies. The policy implications of the findings are applicable to both mixed and black voluntary organisations.
