We have teamed up with researchers at the University of Essex to develop a survey that aims to understand volunteer experiences that involve talking to strangers. We would love to hear from you about your experiences volunteering with us, whether you have or have not yet talked with FoodCycle guests during the course of your volunteering with FoodCycle.  

This research will help us to understand your experiences and concerns, and is expected to lead to new training provision for our volunteers. It will also contribute to academic research, helping psychologists understand people’s expectations and experiences talking to strangers. To help us and the researchers at University of Essex, all you need to do is fill out a 10 minute survey before Sunday 4th April 2021.
