In partnership with Spark Somerset, we’ve launched the second Somerset VCSE State of the Sector Survey.
The survey, which will be run every three years, gives VCSE organisations large and small an opportunity to tell us about their organisation, the great work that they do, and any challenges they face. It explores key areas such as income and expenditure, volunteering and workforce and has become a valuable resource for the voluntary and community sector.
The first State of the Sector Survey was run in 2016, and the findings have proved invaluable for a range of activities, including lobbying and fundraising. In addition, they are used to inform local government and funders of the scale and impact of our sector. You can view the report here.
Your input is vital to ensure we understand fully the situation and views from the diverse range of charities, community groups and social purpose organisations working in our county.
As a thank you, everyone who participates in the survey will be entered into a draw to win a donation of £250 for their organisation*, courtesy of Somerset Community Foundation.
