The Commonside Trust is a non-profit community organization devoted to developing the Commonside area, located in the London borough of Merton. Because of limited staff, the Trust has been unable to devote resources to increase its volunteer base and community awareness of its programs. The purpose of this study was (1) to gather and present information to the Trust about attitudes towards volunteering, and (2) to provide technical support (a website review and a database) that will aid their efforts to increase volunteers and community involvement.
