State of the Sector Survey

The new State of the Sector Survey is now live.  Please complete it yourself and encourage others to do likewise so we can get as full a picture of the sector as possible.

This is a Manchester survey being done in tandem with local surveys by neighbouring CVSs and GMCVO.

Here’s a little bit of info about the survey:

Some of the key facts from the 2013 State of the Sector survey (3093 organisations, 94,300 volunteers) are now widely quoted by colleagues in the Council, the NHS and other bodies such as Big Lottery Fund. It has influenced the development of plans and policies such as the new Our Manchester strategy. All this means that Macc – and everyone in the sector – is able to state confidently what an important social and economic contribution we make in our city and use that to influence decisions about commissioning and funding.

However since then there have been significant changes both within the sector and the city so it’s now time to repeat the survey.

The work done in the sector directly affects the lives of people in Manchester, so it is very important that we know what is happening.  So, helping with this are The Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR), at Sheffield Hallam University and partner organisations across Greater Manchester that will enable us to create not just a Manchester picture of the sector but a Greater Manchester wide footprint to enable us to provide value evidence and insight into the Greater Manchester devolution agenda.

It should take around 20 minutes to complete the survey.
