Building the volunteering community at the Office for National Statistics.

Given and Gain Day-ONS

If you came along to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for the day, one of the things you might notice, (apart from the steady buzz of people working hard to deliver informative data and analyses for the public good), is the number and variety of fund-raising activities going on. Raffles, bake sales and charity days are part of the landscape and each year we raise thousands of pounds for causes that are close to our hearts.

Mike Smith's main role at ONS is to support and monitor the transformation of Business Statistics. He has been inspired by the tremendous and selfless work of many of his colleagues to make a difference. At the moment, this means trying to develop a coordinated programme of volunteering to bring about sustainable positive change to a local community.
