This blog reports on a UK study which found that:
  • Volunteering is associated with higher levels of wellbeing, better general health and fewer mental health problems. This finding has stood up to repeated analysis using the full range of quantitative evidence available in the UK. 
  • Formal volunteering as part of a group improves wellbeing significantly more than informal, irregular volunteering.
