This article provides an insight into the voluntary sector’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in one UK region, using qualitative evidence from a rapid evaluation study with leaders of volunteer agencies. We picked out the information relevant to services that disabled people access, as a way to provide a snapshot of the issues experienced during the various lockdowns, as well as participants’ concerns for the future of volunteering in the UK.
