This three-year ARC project is designed to provide new models of volunteering for a traditional volunteer service, Meals on Wheels. It is being implemented across three years and three stages. Stage 1 comprised an international review and evaluation stage; resulting in one submitted article, two conference presentations and good contextual information for future stages; Stage 2 comprised interview with CEOs and key stakeholders at national and across levels of MoWs. Data collection has been completed and an article finalised from this phase. Stage 3 comprised a national survey to be rolled out in partnership with national MoWs in 2012.
