Case Study: Swindon Community Learning Partnership

Volunteering is central to Swindon Community Learning Partnership’s approach to community engagement.  It is one of the key ways in which adult community learning contributes to delivering the wider strategic priorities of Swindon Borough Council (SBC).  This case study describes how Adult and Community Learning Service works with Health and Wellbeing colleagues and the Localities Team to run an integrated and sustainable volunteer programme based on an ABC” model that recruits and trains volunteers to engage and progress some of the most excluded residents in the borough’s priority communities.
