Abstract

This report is an exploratory study of factors involved in voluntary action for twelve people in East London identified as 'community leaders'. They were interviewed by members of the Center for Institutional Studies urban regeneration evaluation team
about their volunteering experiences, how they became involved and what sustained and inhibited their participation. The report suggests some tentative implications for public policy and practice.
