University of Dundee - Good Samaritans under scrutiny

October 22, 2009

Students from the University of Dundee are working with a Scottish disability charity to examine why people volunteer and what makes them continue to offer their time. Postgraduate students studying design ethnography will work with Capability Scotland on the project, which will explore "sustainable volunteering". The charity wants to know more about people's motivations for volunteering in order to improve the way it recruits, supports and retains volunteers. "Understanding what people want or need from a product, service or, in this case, volunteering experience, and how to improve it to meet those needs, is what design ethnography is all about," said Catriona Macaulay, programme leader of Dundee's MSc in the subject.
