As the Cost-of-Living crisis hit in 2022 Forum Central asked member organisations to share how it was affecting their organisation.
This survey gathers evidence about the impact of cost pressures and potential risks to staff, services, and organisation viability.
The first survey highlighted shared concerns across the sector about workforce retention and rising costs. Multiple factors present risks to the health and wellbeing of the third sector workforce, such as low pay and staff dealing with the impact of cost-of-living crisis individually and the stress of work pressure from increasing demand on services. This evidence led Forum Central to establish the Third Sector HR Network.
