Community Life survey

The 2012-13 findings of the Community Life survey show that levels of both formal and informal volunteering have increased on 2010-11, following a decline in levels of volunteering in recent years.

The results of the survey also showed a statistically significant increase in the proportion of people who gave money to charity in the four weeks prior to interview.

The survey was commissioned by the Cabinet Office to track the latest trends and developments across areas that are key to encouraging social action and empowering communities.
