Image: The 2012 Games boosted volunteer numbers in BME groups

Record levels of adults aged 16 to 24 and people in black and ethnic minority (BME) groups volunteered in the last 12 months.

The latest Taking Part survey, published by the DCMS, reveals nearly three in 10 BME adults volunteered, compared with only two in 10 when the survey began in 2005-06.

More than 30 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds in England did some volunteering in the past year, compared with just 24.7 per cent in 2005-06.

The survey, which collects data on participation in leisure, culture and sport in England, shows 74.6 per cent of adults visited a heritage site in the last year - the highest proportion since the survey began.

There were also increases in the number of adults visiting a museum or gallery and engaging in the arts within the last year.

When it came to sport, the statistics showed more adults are taking part than at any time since the survey began. Nearly half of those questioned said they had participated in at least one session of 30 minutes of moderate intensity sport in the past week.
