Over the last four years Newcastle CVS has surveyed local voluntary and community organisations that work in Newcastle. This study follows on from three years of similar surveys produced with VONNE through the ‘Surviving or Thriving’ series.
As the sector is increasingly required to navigate a complex and changing funding, commissioning and policy environment, reporting this information is more important than ever. The voluntary and community sector in Newcastle provides a rich and diverse range of services, over a wide geographical area, designed to meet the needs of many different groups.
Respondents ranged from small community based organisations that are completely volunteer-led, to those with several hundred members of staff.
