Time well spent: A national survey on the volunteering experience

coverTime Well Spent is a major new report into the volunteering experience published by NCVO in January 2019. It is the result of a national survey carried out through YouGov's panel (10,000+ respondents).

The survey focuses on volunteering through groups, clubs and organisations and includes data on recent volunteers, but also lapsed volunteers and non-volunteers.

The aims of the survey were to: 

  • gain a rounder view of the different ways people get involved
  • look at how volunteering fits into people’s lives and the impact it has on them
  • understand people’s experiences across the volunteer journey
  • consider what a quality volunteer experience looks like
  • explore how to better engage potential volunteers.

Employer-supported volunteering

ESVPublished in June 2019, the first of our focused reports digging deeper into some key themes from Time Well Spent looks into the area of employer-supported volunteering (ESV). For this report we worked in partnership with the Corporate Volunteering Network (CVN), a peer network of charities and brokers involved in ESV.

This report aims to provide an updated picture of ESV since the previous research in this area carried out in 2015. We wanted to know how things had progressed, and what have been the effects of the changing volunteering landscape. We also wanted to shed more light on the volunteer perspective, as previous research has focused more on the relationships between the organisations involved in managing and delivering ESV.
