Commentary

The Black Country has an average volunteering rate slightly lower than the national average, however this does not reflect great differences between the four local authorities, with Dudley and Wolverhampton having higher rates of volunteering compared to Walsall and Sandwell. To meet the national average, Sandwell needs 1,151 more children and young people volunteering whilst Walsall needs an additional 1,453.
