We believe that, in order to understand how best to support local charities and community groups, we must first listen to their experiences and needs. Through our research we aim to highlight both the unique value of local charities and the key challenges they face.
Our research findings enable us to better support, train and advocate for our members. In addition, these findings contribute to national debates on the wider voluntary sector.
Our hope is that our research findings act as a catalyst for action, prompting key stakeholders from across all sectors of society to engage with the issues and work together to find innovative solutions. Through the implementation of progressive, long-term support initiatives, we believe it is possible to create a brighter, more sustainable future for local charities and the communities of people they serve throughout the UK.
