With continuing thanks to those who have already completed it, may we remind those running Voluntary Organisation in Cornwall about our State of the Sector survey?

Research was carried out in 2013 to identify the contribution of the sector to the economy of CIoS and inform the Employment and Skills Strategies for the sector.  Cornwall Council now wishes to revisit this body of research and intelligence to look at the changes the sector has experienced over the five years and the health of the sector going forwards.

We are asking all Voluntary Sector organisations to fill in the survey, once per office base or organisation.  So if your organisation has three offices in Cornwall, then we’d love to have three responses, from the senior people in those offices.  Please do pass the link on to other organisations you think would be relevant, and within the bounds of GDPR.

The closing date for the survey is 21 September – Friday of this week.

We will ensure anonymity, and produce combined statistics from the responses received, without identifying any individual replies.  Any quotes will be anonymised.  Participation is entirely voluntary, but we do hope you can contribute.  Most questions are compulsory, and you won’t be allowed to proceed to the next page until you have answered all of them – though there are ‘don’t know’ options in most cases.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

If you have any queries, please contact Ian Smith, Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum, on ian.smith@corwnallvsf.org, or leave a message on the answerphone at 01872 672872
