Since 2010, there have been major changes in public sector policy. This has effected the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. As well as major government policy changes, commissioning and procurement requirements, the impact of the reduction in funding for local councils, the effect of welfare reforms and other factors have made local not for profit organisations completely rethink what they do.

The information in this report derives from a survey carried out in January 2018, visits and discussions with voluntary and community organisations, discussions at the Gateshead Voluntary Sector Leaders Group, the Wellbeing and Health Open Forum and the Children and Young People’s Forum in Newcastle and Gateshead, and the experiences of the Newcastle CVS staff.
