North West Voluntary and Community Sector Survey
Opening up public services to voluntary groups is something that's at the centre of government policy.
Voluntary Sector North West - the regional body that puts forward the views of voluntary groups of all types - wants to see how this might affect your organisation. They have a simple online questionnaire - there are only a dozen questions so it shouldn't take long to complete. The questions are connected to some of the key principles in the government's White Paper on public services that came out last year.
Please complete the questionnaire, even if your group is currently not involved in delivering public services. The results will help VSNW understand where the cuts and the changes are affecting the sector, and where they should concentrate their campaigning and information efforts.
The online questionnaire - open until May 1st - is available here.
