Managers of volunteers have been managing older volunteers for some considerable time. Managers of paid workers are only just beginning to feel the effects of the ageing workforce. This paper reports on some aspects of an exploration of the experiences of managers and volunteers when a manager of volunteers perceives that a volunteer's performance is declining and that this may be associated with ageing.
