NFP Synergy reports

Here are 2 recent reports from NFP which I’ve found very useful:

A resource to help organisations  understand the key political, economic and social trends influencing their organisations

AND – This report gives an overview of volunteering over time from as far back as 2003 up until August 2017.

Here are some of our key findings:

  • Overall volunteering levels are fairly stable; however, individual waves show volatility, possibly due to a season increase over the summer.
  • The most interesting changes appear to be over age group and gender.
  • 16-34 year old men are now one of the most likely groups to volunteer closely followed by women in the same age group.
  • Volunteering levels in both 45-54 year olds and 55-64 year olds have declined between 2012 and 2017. These age groups are those for whom no major initiatives exist to encourage volunteering
