Abstract

Much has been written about the economic costs of our most recent recession. However, what were its social costs? How did the civic wellbeing of individuals and our communities fare? James Laurence finds the UK suffered a social recession alongside the economic one, with volunteering behaviour declining sharply following the crisis in 2008.
