Volunteering in a Virtual World

To set up an action research/feasibility study, which would include a small pilot scheme to see if this idea would work for Powys.

We do not want to pay a consultant to sit at a desk, doing research, making phone calls and then collating that information into a traditional feasibility study.
We would employ a worker for 12 months to;

  • Research where this type of volunteering has worked
  • Design a method/project that would possibly work for Powys
  • Identify a sample of third sector organisations in Powys to work with to take this action research forward ( Action Research Project Group)
  • Use the learning gathered to set up a pilot project
  • Target people within the agreed age range to volunteer.
  • Virtually place the volunteers within third sector groups
  • Monitor and evaluate all the work done and produce a feasibility study. 

An effective and useful Feasibility Study helps to objectively decide whether to proceed with a proposed project and explores possible funding streams.
