Unlike most neighboring countries, Switzerland has no state-supervised volunteering strategy and does not carry out systematic research into voluntary work. The SSCG, therefore, decided in 2002 to conduct a broad-sweeping survey on the status quo of voluntary commitment in Switzerland and thus create a well-documented source of information for research into the country’s volunteering efforts. Following studies in 2007, 2010, 2016 and 2020, the SSCG plans to carry out a fifth research project into the status of voluntary work in Switzerland and publish it in the Swiss Volunteering Survey 2025.
