‘State of the Sector’ survey – we would like your views!
Every two years we send a ‘State of the Sector’ survey to charities, community groups and social enterprises in Hampshire. Our objective is to understand the current realities of life for Hampshire’s voluntary sector, so that we can better influence local stakeholders and partners.
We’d be most grateful if you would complete the survey by Friday 13th March 2020. And please share with other colleagues and friends who work or volunteer in a Hampshire charity, community group or social enterprise.
The survey asks 28 questions, but most of them are just quick tick boxes. It should take around 10 minutes to complete. The questions are about: your services; finance; volunteers; staff (if relevant); impact; the future; and demographics. You can tell us as much or as little as you wish – no questions are ‘compulsory’.
The results of the survey will enable us to work more effectively on your behalf.
For example, if we have a clearer idea of the sector’s skills gaps (staff and volunteers), we can lobby the Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to resource training for the sector. And we can help stakeholders to understand the impact and value of the sector by telling them about the amazing work that is going on in Hampshire.
The survey is being conducted on behalf of all the CVSs (Councils for Voluntary Service) in Hampshire. We work together as the Hampshire CVS Network.
