In May 2023, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) published the results from the second wave of ‘Time Well Spent: A national survey on the volunteering experience’.
Their research was based on an online survey of 7,000 adults aged 18+ across Great Britain. Volunteer Scotland was granted access to the Scottish dataset to enable it to produce volunteering statistics for Scotland. We have deep mined this excellent data-source to explore the Scottish volunteer experience in detail.
Volunteer Scotland’s analysis has focused on the results from the 2023 ‘Time Well Spent’ survey, and a comparison to 2019 to provide analysis and insights on how the volunteer experience has changed for Scottish volunteers.

- Factors which may encourage non-volunteers to get involved in volunteering in the future.

Volunteer Scotland would like to thank NCVO for providing access to their anonymised dataset and their support in reviewing our analysis.
