Voluntary work

Why is this important for social statistics?

Voluntary work supports groups and organisations whose activities contribute to social well-being. Volunteers give their time and skills to help others and give back to their community.

This indicator measures the proportion of the population aged 15 years and over who did voluntary work for a group or organisation in the last four weeks.
