Our Retired and Senior Volunteering Programme (RSVP) in Coventry has been delivering a project tackling isolation and improving wellbeing amongst older people in Coventry through volunteer-led activity. Part of this project involved working specifically with older people within the Asian community to overcome barriers to volunteer participation and to increase their engagement in the wider community.

This report was produced by Charities Evaluation Services and focuses on the work done by the project within the Asian community. It is based on data collected by Volunteering Matters as well as on interviews carried out with Asian volunteer group leaders, volunteers and beneficiaries. This programme has been supported by the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Community Programme.
