Here you can find information about some of the ongoing research that the PhD students connected to the Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership are undertaking. These projects are all at different stages and give a flavour of both the breadth of the centre's focus and the different aspects of carrying out PhD research.
As some of these contributions were gathered during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, a number of the PhD researchers reflect on what this disruption has meant for their work.
