Local Commissioning: The Experiences of Hampshire's Voluntary Sector

Action Hampshire, recently carried out some research into Local Commissioning in Hampshire. Please click the link below to read the summary of the survey.

Lloyds Bank Foundation recently published a report: ‚ÄúCommissioning in Crisis. How current contracting and procurement processes threaten the survival of small charities‚ÄĚ. They carried out research with a range of smaller charities across the UK. The report made alarming reading, so Action Hampshire carried out its own survey to see if findings were replicated at a local level in Hampshire.

181 responses were received answering 12 questions relating to local commissioning practices.

We would like to give our very grateful thanks to all that participated in the survey.

If you would like to discuss this research in further detail, please contact Kirsty Rowlinson 01962 857355

What next?

We will be holding a half day event for the sector and commissioners on how we can work together to improve commissioning for everyone. We hope this will be a positive, constructive exercise with tangible benefits for the future of commissioning locally.

The event will be held on Wednesday 27 June, 9:30-1:30 at Hope Church, Winchester. For more details and to book your place, please visit our Eventbrite page.
