Third Sector Trends Survey 2013 - Yorkshire & Humber
The aim of producing the Survey is to produce reliable evidence for bids, planning services and demonstrating the contribution of the VCS to the economy and communities.
The Survey will provide robust data about the size, value, activity, volunteering and geographical spread of the voluntary sector for Yorkshire and Humber. This data will support the work of voluntary organisations and provide valuable information for other sectors concerned about their communities.
In 2011 Involve Y & H published the first "Third Sector Trends Survey" Now, they want to update the data so they can see what has happened to the voluntary sector in the meantime and understand the impact of trends and changes affecting it.
This evidence will be important in the face of cuts to budgets in all sectors and in the run up to the General Election. They hope to have initial reports in the autumn of 2013 and this will be at local authority and regional levels.
The new study is being carried out by Professor Tony Chapman of Durham University. Tony has a long standing involvement in this type of study and has produced "Taking the temperature" about the voluntary sector in the North East.
They will conduct this work through an anonymous online questionnaire, which they want to go to as many voluntary and community organisations of every type as possible. It takes 10-12 minutes to complete.
