Community Life Survey

The Community Life Survey is held annually to track trends and developments in areas that encourage social action and empower communities.

The Cabinet Office commissioned the first Community Life Survey in 2012 to look at the latest trends in areas such as volunteering, charitable giving, local action and networks and well-being. The aim of the survey is to provide cost-effective data of value to government, external stakeholders and citizens.
