Community Life survey figures for 2013-14 show declining rates of volunteering

Today saw the release of the latest figures from the Community Life survey, for 2013-14. During this time:

  • 41 per cent of people questioned reported volunteering formally (ie through a group, club or organisation) at least once in the previous year
  • 27 per cent said they took part at least once a month (‘regular volunteers’).

These proportions have decreased from last year’s Community Life survey results (for the period August 2012 to April 2013); which were 44% and 29% respectively.

But not all changes in figures are statistically significant – sometimes the changes can be small, which may mean that we cannot say with confidence that it is an actual, statistical change, rather than possible error.
