Today saw the release of the latest figures from the Community Life survey for 2014-15. During this time:
- 42% of people questioned reported volunteering formally (ie through a group, club or organisation) at least once in the previous year.
- 27% said they took part at least once a month (‘regular volunteers’).
There has been no significant change from last year’s Community Life survey results (for the period August 2013 to April 2014) which were 41% and 27% respectively.
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.
