The Central Statistics Office (CSO) has today (01 February 2024) released the Census 2022 Spotlight Series: Volunteering in Ireland.

This publication looks at volunteering in Ireland in April 2022 and provides information on the types of volunteering, the age breakdown of volunteers, their locations and more.

Volunteering is integral to a huge range of organisations and activities which people in every town, village, city, and county in Ireland participate in and rely on every day. This publication will help us to better understand volunteering in Ireland today.

In Meath, 14% of the county’s population – almost 30,300 people – were volunteering in their community and various organisations in April 2022.

The Press Statement, which includes county by county data, is available here – https://www.cso.ie/en/csolatestnews/pressreleases/2024pressreleases/pressstatementcensusofpopulation2022spotlightseriesvolunteeringinireland/
