Bradford Volunteering Programme

In December 2014 Bradford Museums & Galleries got in touch to ask us to evaluate their 'Connecting with People' volunteering and youth engagement programme. Funded by Arts Council England, it's a core part of Bradford's community engagement work and focuses on developing sustainable, effectively managaed volunteering and youth programmes that reach out to people from a broad cross-section of the community.


We've been busy talking to staff, volunteers and young people about the work that's been done over the last two years and what's changed for them. We'll be submitting an evaluation report in March 2015 which will form part of the organisation's feedback to Arts Council England.
