August 16, 2016   //   No Comments

The Cabinet Office recently released the results of the 2015 to 2016 Community Life Survey, which shows that charitable donations from the giving public remain at their highest ever.  Levels of volunteering have been sustained and even more people agree that their neighbourhood pulls together for local improvement.  The major survey of 3,000 adults over 16 years old in England, tracks the latest trends and developments. It covers the period between July 2015 and April 2016.

Highlights include:

  • 70% of people responding to the survey have volunteered in the past year
  • 73% of people report that they donate money to charities in an average four week period
  • 68% of respondents agreed that their ‘neighbourhood pulls together to improve the area’ – up from 63% last year
