While some even claimed they did not have any spare time to be volunteers, the poll found.

Nearly a fifth said nothing sparks their interest while a quarter admitted they had no idea where to start or how to get involved.

Despite this, 43 percent of Gen Zs do carry out some form of volunteering up to three times a month.

Of those who do currently volunteer, 46 per cent started because of lockdown, while 38 per cent do it because they were influenced by friends and family.
