The pie charts show the proportions of people volunteering in various kinds of organizations in 2008 and 2014.

It is clear that while volunteer’s participation in environmental, sport, and health care increased, the opposite was true for other types of organizations. Additionally, the percentages of health care volunteers were by far the lowest during the two years.

In 2008, volunteering in educational organizations was the most common choice, accounting for nearly a quarter of all volunteerS, while 21 per cent and 18 per cent of volunteers took part in environmental and art projects respectively. 15 per cent of volunteers worked in sport organizations and another 15 per cent in other organizations, while only 6 per cent volunteered in health care.

In 2014, significantly more volunteers worked in environmental and sport organizations compared with the other field, at 29 per cent and 25 per cent respectively. Meanwhile, the figures for art and other volunteers both fell by 6 per cent. There was also a slight fall in volunteers in educational organizations, at 17 per cent while volunteering in health care was still the least preferred option, at only 8 per cent.
