Adam has extensive policy and research experience and before joining CAF in 2012 worked for the National Council for Voluntary Organizations (UK representative body for non-profits) and the Centre for Public Scrutiny (accountability think-tank). Adam also has experience of working in India.

The World Giving Index 

Each year, CAF releases its World Giving Index, a report designed to provide evidence-based insight into the scope and nature of giving around the world.

In order to reflect a culturally diverse planet, the report looks at three aspects of giving behavior. The questions that feed the report are:

Have you done any of the following in the past month:

  • Donated money to a charity?
  • Volunteered your time to an organisation?
  • Helped a stranger, or someone you didn’t know who needed help?

Fieldwork is conducted by the market research firm, Gallup1 as part of its World Poll initiative 2 that operates in 160 countries.
