Low levels of workers’ time to volunteer

A survey run by ComRes on behalf of the Charities Aid Foundation has found that fewer than one in 10 workers are given paid time off to volunteer.

The research also revealed that nearly six out of 10 people believe offering staff more paid volunteering leave would encourage them to give up more of their time for good causes. More than two thirds of people believe that having flexibility in terms of time commitment and using skills and knowledge for volunteering were also important factors in encouraging people to give more of their time.
