Abstract

This report was commission by Sir Thomas Hughes-Hallett founder of HelpForce in
March 2017 to review the current evidence on the effectiveness, deployment and impact of
volunteers in the NHS, to support the organisation’s work in maximizing the potential of
volunteering in health and social care. This report’s remit was to pull together evidence to
help answer the following questions:
1. What volunteer / lay roles are effective in health and care?
2. What do we know about the effective recruitment, management and deployment of
volunteers (in any setting)?
3. What evidence is there about the impact of volunteers in health and social care, within
England health and social care organisations, and from voluntary sector initiatives
working into health and social care?
