Invitation to take part in a research workshop about responses to changes in local community needs


Michael Rasell and Leslie Hicks from the University of Lincoln are looking for participants to take part in a research workshop for 18-25 years old who do voluntary work.  The event is designed to explore current pressures in local communities and general ideas for future actions.

The project is part of Europe-wide research which is piloting ways to gather young adults’ ideas in six different countries.  The University of Lincoln is the UK partner in the project, where the aim is to share and compare information about local developments.

Due to their important work in supporting communities, 18-25 year olds who do voluntary activity are warmly invited to participate in the workshop.  No preparation or qualifications are needed to take part in the session –  simply come with an interest in discussing your experiences in local communities and sharing your ideas.

The Lincoln workshop will take place on Wednesday 6 April from 12.30 until 2.30 p.m. in the Main Building of the University of Lincoln on its Brayford Pool campus.  We will start with a buffet lunch.  As a ‘thank you’ for taking part, we will offer a gift voucher to the value of £20.

Further information is provided in this information sheet.  If you and/or a friend would like to attend, please confirm this by email to Michael at by no later than Monday 4 April.   Places are offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.  Michael will reply to confirm your place and will be very happy to answer questions.
