Volunteering in Conflicts and Emergencies (ViCE)

The Volunteering in Conflicts and Emergencies (ViCE) Hub is led by the Swedish Red Cross in Partnership with Northumbria’s Centre for International Development.

The ViCE Hub works to increase recognition, understanding and support of the key roles volunteers play in conflicts and emergencies. This includes research on the lived experiences of volunteers during crises, advocacy to improve recognition of volunteer needs, and training and support for organisations and bodies who engage volunteers in crisis. To do this, the ViCE HUB brings together practitioners, volunteers and wider stakeholders to co-design research approaches and jointly develop responses to the challenges they face.

To find out more about the ViCE Hub visit the project website.
