Nottingham Council for Voluntary Service wanted a small study of their project Volunteering for Employment Skills. This report presents the main findings from the research. Chapter 1 describes Volunteering for Employment Skills (V4ES) and the reasons for this research. It explains how we did the research and invited people who had been in touch with V4ES to take part in research interviews. In Chapter 2 are the views and experiences of those people who took part in the research. Chapter 3 contains their suggestions for developing and improving V4ES and similar projects. In Chapter 4 the researchers discuss the findings generally, within the wider context of government policy to help everybody who wants to try paid work to do this. At the back of the report there are further details about the way we did the research.
