Benchmarking Studies

Volunteers Count

Is volunteering a strategic function within your organisation? Be a credible voice, by benchmarking your volunteer management metrics against other not-for-profit organisations.

Why do Volunteers Count?

Hundreds of organisations have taken part in our biennial Volunteers Count study, since 2011. It provides you with the online tools to dig deep into your own results, and drill down into primary focus areas.

As part of the Volunteers Count community, you can choose who to compare with on key measures, benefit from others’ good practice, and share your experiences through the Contact Zone.

The 2019 Volunteers Count Study has now closed and the reports are available in the publications section of the website. You can still take part in the latest study as an ‘out-of-cycle’ participant. Your results will not be included in the whole sample but you are able to benchmark your results against your chosen peers and the whole sample. To find out more, please email Clare Harris or call +44 (0)1865 263720.
