This report summarises key findings from our study of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games clyde-sider volunteering programme, drawing on key learning from three surveys and qualitative research.

The study was designed to gather learning on the expectations, experiences and long-term impacts of volunteering on applicants, capturing the views of both those who were selected and those who were not successful with their application.

Recommendations are offered in relation to how future mega-event volunteering programmes can be designed and delivered in the interests of inclusivity and diversity, as well as for how mega-event volunteering programmes can be used to support volunteering increases within the general population.
