In the 12 months prior to the Survey, 7.5 per cent of the population aged 16 and older participated in formal voluntary activities organised by charity, religious or other organisations or clubs, 9.5 per cent – in informal voluntary activities (helping individuals, animals etc.). Women were more active in voluntary activities than men: 9.4 per cent of women and 5.3 per cent of men participated in formal voluntary activities, while informal voluntary activities were attended by 11 per cent of women and 7.8 per cent of men. Age did not have a significant influence on participation in voluntary activities, with only the retirement age group showing a significantly lower participation level. Compared to the results of a similar survey carried out in 2015, the proportion of the population participating in voluntary activities decreased around 2 times, but this was due to the restrictions introduced by COVID‑19.
