The Annual Return of Volunteer Centres provides crucial data on the activities of Volunteer Centres in England. The results are used by NCVO and the Volunteer Centre network to inform development work and improve practice.
We still believe that the majority of volunteering takes place at the local level and that Volunteer Centres have a crucial part in helping this to happen, perhaps now more than ever. And this survey, which we create and analyse annually, really helps us understand and advocate for this.
If you work for or run a Volunteer Centre (whether integrated or independent) and are able to provide information on its behalf, we would welcome and value your response.
You can complete the survey online – we would appreciate it if you could do this by Sunday 31st May.
If you want to prepare your answers in advance, you can download a PDF of the survey questions. Please complete the survey online rather than on the PDF.
