Time Well Spent 2023

Thursday 29th of June 2023

Time Well Spent is NCVO’s biggest research programme on people’s experiences of volunteering. With a better understanding, we aim to provide rich and practical insights that will inform practice and policy, address knowledge gaps, and generate new evidence.

Their first report, Time Well Spent: A national survey on the volunteer experience, was published in 2019 and based on 2018 survey data of 10,103 adults across Great Britain. It explored volunteer participation, motivations and barriers to volunteering, the quality of people’s experiences, and the impact of volunteering.

NCVO published a further four reports between 2019 and 2022, which focused on different areas of interest, based on the original data and additional qualitative research
