On International Volunteer Day we are delighted to be able to share with you the first comprehensive survey of the Dance to Health volunteering programme.
Volunteering is one of the cornerstones of Dance to Health; alongside the arts, health and communities. This evaluation considers the physical, emotional, social and community, cultural and economic impact that volunteering has had. ou can download the PDF report here.
We took testimonials and evidence from our Dance Partners, Dance Artists, participants and volunteers and the results are inconclusive.
Our volunteers have a significant positive impact and are instrumental in creating the safe and welcoming environment which enables the participants to successfully address their fitness, strength and balance needs. The emotional support our volunteers provide enables more vulnerable participants to push at the boundaries of their capabilities, complementing the Dance Artist’s physical instruction and achieving greater outcomes.
