Using participatory mapping to explore participation in the voluntary sector

Using Participatory Mapping to Explore Participation in the Voluntary Sector

Eddie Cowling (Involve) Researcher on the Pathways Through Participation project


What is a map

What is a map?

  • Maps come in many forms

  • Maps are socially constructed

  • Conventionalised

  • Shaped by political, economic, social

    and cultural discourses of the time

  • Appealing means of communication

  • Can represent time

  • Relational

  • Reflect the map-maker’s worldview


Participatory mapping

Participatory Mapping

  • Draws on valuable local knowledge

  • Recognises local people are capable research collaborators

  • Encourages diverse involvement

  • Fosters empowerment

  • Literacy and geography skills not essential

Pathways Through Participation

  • The project will explore how and why people get involved and stay involved in different forms of participation over the course of their lives.

  • Participation means many things to many different people. The project will look at participation in a very broad sense and consider the act of taking part in a wide range of social or civic activities.

  • Several mapping sessions in each community

  • Explore the mapping process, not just the maps themselves

  • Maps will aid the preparation of the second phase of the research...
