The Christian Opinion Panel: Giving survey
The Christian Opinion Panel was established in 2015 and conducted the largest consumer survey of UK Christians. We discovered that 87% of UK Christians felt it was ‘important to them’ to give to Charity. The Christian Opinion Panel: Giving survey is our latest survey of UK Christians and asked 43 in-depth questions of over 500 UK Christians specifically about their giving behaviour.
The Christian Opinion Panel: Giving survey was commissioned by TMH Media, a media agency that has specialised in Christian and Ethnic media for the over 18 years. TMH work directly with Charities, Advertising Agencies and Businesses, engaging them into action and helping them to reach new audiences.
Why was there a need for this survey?
No facts and figures about UK Christian giving had been recorded before we launched the UK Christian Opinion Panel in 2015. This survey revealed that 87% of participants felt it was important to give to Charity. The Christian Opinion Panel: Giving survey delves further into the attitudes to giving of UK Christians, providing unprecedented insight and data on all aspects of the giving experience.
