2023 volunteer survey results

We’re really pleased to report that our volunteers are still enjoying themselves at Hazel Hill Wood! Similar results to last year, with some more positive responses and fewer improvements suggested.

  • 64% strongly agree and 36% agree that they learn while volunteering with us.
  • 93% feel better mentally and physically as a result of volunteering (1 “neutral” response).
  • 71% feel more connected to nature.

Reasons for volunteering continue to have themes of:

  • Making a difference
  • Being with likeminded people
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Learning new skills

See here for a presentation with graphs and more details. See below for some photos of what we’ve achieved.

If you’re not already volunteering with us and would like to join the team, please see here for more details. Here’s to another great year ahead!
