With the support of the Scottish Government, and as part of Scotland’s Volunteering Action Plan, a project was developed by Make Your Mark and the University of Strathclyde to support inclusive volunteering programmes across Scotland’s voluntary sector. The project had two elements:

>Gathering evidence on barriers to cultures of inclusive volunteering in volunteer organisations and community-led groups with lived experience of marginalisation (delivered through focus groups and a survey).
>Designing an Inclusive Volunteering Toolkit.

The project commenced in October 2022 with the first development programme workshop, and came to a close in July 2023 with the launch of the Inclusive Volunteering Toolkit. This report offers a summary of key findings and recommendations from the project.
