Are you involved in supporting a good cause?
While young people are least likely to give money, they are the most likely to give their time for free, with 19% of people aged 16 to 24 having done so. By comparison, one in ten (11%) people aged 65 or over volunteered for a charity.
It also found that four in five (79%) people in the UK got involved in at least one form of charitable action in 2015.
CAF chief executive John Low said: “The UK is a nation of fundraisers and charity shop lovers with a great tradition of being among the most generous countries in the world.
“In 2015, four out of every five people did something to support a good cause. This huge support is crucial to the work charities do to improve people’s lives both at home and across the world.
“While we should rightly be proud of this track record, many of us will be a little disappointed to see that men are still struggling to keep up with women when it comes to acts of generosity.”
The UK Giving report surveyed more than 4,100 people aged 16 and over across the UK.
