Volunteering is central to the social development, economy, and environment of New Zealanders. Between 2004 and 2013, Statistics NZ data shows there was a 21% increase in the number of people volunteering in organisations, but a 42% drop in total hours they volunteered over the same time. This report aims to understand these changes, identify possible causes and propose policy and other responses.
