This report by Street Games and Sports England covers the Sport England Volunteer Action Research Project, which aimed to increase participation in volunteering and social action through sport. The project focused on young females and young people from BAME backgrounds and communities. A key aim of the project was learning and understanding what can encourage these young people to start volunteering and what can help make this a long-term interest for them as well as analysing the impact of volunteering at an individual and community level.

The report also provides case studies from different regions of the country and boroughs of London- such as BAME volunteers from mixed gender in Southwark & Lambeth and female volunteers in Wigan and Brent. Understanding the reasons why young people volunteer such as enjoyment and young people feeling valued and supported, is something that can help boost participation in the future.
