  • Abstract

    The Swiss Volunteering Survey 2020 provides information on the current status of unpaid volunteering. In Switzerland, volunteering for the benefit of people, society and the environment is regularly examined on the basis of a nationwide survey. The volunteering survey highlights trends and developments in voluntary work and provides an important basis for the management of volunteers in associations and clubs, homes, churches and aid organizations. At the same time, the development of volunteerism shown by the surveys is an indicator of the vitality of social relationships and welfare orientations in Switzerland. The promotion of social cohesion and volunteerism is the core task of the Swiss Society for the Common Good (SSCG). The SSCG initiated the Swiss Volunteering Survey almost 20 years ago and publishes it every four to five years.
