The UK is home to a wide variety of faith communities, each of which has its own distinctive tradition of voluntary action. Indeed, as the research upon which this report is based shows, many of these communities and their institutions seem to depend almost entirely upon voluntary action for their survival: a large proportion of community members volunteer regularly and an even larger number occasionally. This report is based on the findings of an exploratory study that looked at: how people in different faith communities volunteer; what motivates them to volunteer; how their volunteering is organised; how their volunteering is resourced; and what the relationship is between faith communities and local networks.

Explains how the Revolving Doors Agency, the UK's leading charity concerned with mental health and the criminal justice system, has succeeded in involving its clients as volunteers.
