Earlier this year, Elisha Evans and Joe Saxton of 'NFP Synergy' in the United Kingdom, released a report titled 'Five key trends and their impact on the voluntary sector'. The report looked at five demographic trends and explored their likely impact on the voluntary sector.
The five trends the report examined were:
- The ageing population
- The changing structure of families
- Diversification of households
- Educational levels
- Changes to financial independence
The report offers many valuable insights into possible future trends affecting volunteering, a topic in which e-Volunteerism is clearly interested.
Rather than simply present you with the NFP Synergy document, we decided to invite several international leaders in volunteerism to review the report and add their thoughts, comments and opinions to those expressed in the report.
