Third Sector Trend

Third Sector Trends in the North 2019

We are encouraging as many organisations as possible to take part in this 10-year study of the voluntary and community sector which is now running right across the North of England.

Whether your organisation or group is big or small, flourishing or struggling financially – or just carrying on more or less as normal – Durham University would like to hear from you.

Using the findings, the University will build a picture of how organisations and groups work, how they get their resources and how they are planning to work in future.

The research aims to help inform national and local government, health organisations and charitable foundations so that they make good decisions on how to invest in the activity of the third sector.

The research also helps the third sector itself to show the extent and value of the work it does.

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

Complete the survey online:

The project is supported by the Community Foundation serving Tyne & Wear and Northumberland and Power to Change.

If you have any questions about the research and/or the questionnaire, please contact Professor Tony Chapman at Durham University:
