Delhi 2010 Flag Handover Ceremony Research
The Delhi 2010 Flag Handover Ceremony (DFHC) was a project delivered by Glasgow Life on behalf of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Organising Committee (OC). The Handover Ceremony took place on Thursday 14th October 2010 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi, and reflects the passing of responsibility for the Commonwealth Games from one host (Delhi) to the next (Glasgow). Glasgow Life has commissioned three research projects to examine the impact of the DFHC:
Volunteer Participation Research
Glasgow Life commissioned colleagues from the University of the West of Scotland to undertake this research. It explores the impact of participation in the DFHC on the personal, professional, social and civic life of volunteers and also considers the approach to volunteer participation and its implications for individuals, staff and other stakeholders.
Beyond the Ceremony: Skills Legacy Research
Undertaken by our Policy, Research and Development Team, this research explores the skills legacy from the DFHC for Glasgow Life staff and the wider cultural and creative sector in Scotland.
Undertaken by Dr Angela Turner on behalf of Glasgow Life, this research explores the involvement of disabled volunteers/those with additional support needs.
