Whether your organisation or group is big or small, flourishing or struggling financially - or just carrying on more or less as normal - we need to hear from you.
This is a long-term study carried out by Durham University in the North of England on voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises, cooperatives, community businesses and informal clubs, groups and societies (the 'third sector') which started in 2010 and runs right across the North of England.
The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and you shouldn't need to check up any facts and figures to fill it in. Using the findings, we build a picture of how organisations and groups work, how they get their resources and what they achieve.
This helps to inform national and local government, health organisations and charitable foundations to make good decisions on how to invest in the third sector. It also helps the third sector itself show the extent and value of the work it does. The project has generously been supported by Community Foundation serving Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and Power to Change.
All data are securely stored completely anonymously and we protect all information in strictest confidence. Please start the survey here - https://durham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/third-sector-trends-in-the-north-of-england-2019-live-s-2
