Third Sector Trends Study 2019 Update

/, MailChimp, News/Third Sector Trends Study 2019 Update

The Third Sector Trends project in Leeds need to hear from you, whether you are large or small, thriving, struggling or going on more or less as normal. 

This is a long-term study in the North of England on voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises, cooperatives, community businesses and informal clubs, groups and societies (the ‘third sector’) which started in 2010 and runs right across the North of England.

The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and you shouldn’t need to check up any facts and figures to fill it in.

For those of you who don’t know much about the study you can download the report from the 2016 study when they got over 1000 returns. But they have new areas of analysis this time on local impact, community business and relationships with grant makers amongst other things.

There’s been a bit of a slow start in some parts of  West Yorkshire compared with 2013, but things are picking up now that they have relaunched using Charity Commission email listings. Leeds is doing well at the moment thanks in particular to strong support from the Community Foundation, CCG and VAL.

Headline findings will be published in December 2019 and the full results will be freely available from spring 2020.

If you would like more information or would like to to discuss the study more and how to get a good response in your areas of interest please contact Professor Tony Chapman, Director of Research, Policy&Practice,  St Chad’s College, Durham University
