About Us

The Voluntary Action History Society (VAHS) aims to advance the historical understanding and analysis of voluntary action. VAHS is run by a committee of volunteers and has a membership of individuals. We are based in the UK but have members from across the world and work closely with international colleagues. A registered charity since 1995, VAHS carries out a number of activities including:

  • Voluntary Action Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research, London.
  • New Researchers’ workshops held throughout the UK.
  • Biennial research conferences.
  • Occasional conferences and symposia.
  • Edited blog on topics of interest to historians of voluntary action.

For more information about VAHS, to join the mailing list, or if you are interested in giving a paper as part of our seminar series please contact Colin Rochester.
