The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) is asking charities to share how their organisation has been affected by the recession and how it has adapted to the changed funding environment.
The call for evidence is part of a review into the voluntary sector’s finances, undertaken with its partners Charity Finance Group, the Institute of Fundraising, Navca and Small Charities Coalition. The stories gathered will help inform the review which was begun last month.
Financial sustainability of voluntary organisations
The review aims to assess the financial sustainability of voluntary organisations, identify trends that have emerged in the income, expenditure and assets of the voluntary sector since the recession and provide analysis to enable the voluntary sector to plan for the future. It is open to submissions from any voluntary organisation.
Submissions can be made until Tuesday 30 September 2014. A final report will be published in early 2015.
Peter Lewis, Chief Executive Officer at the Institute of Fundraising said:
“Voluntary organisations are operating in a tough financial environment and fundraisers have played a crucial role in raising much-needed income for the sector as organisations come to terms with the impact of the recession. I hope that organisations engage with this review so that we are able to gain the fullest picture of how the sector is operating as well as looking forwards to what the future may hold.”
