Scoping the Sector 2014: The True Value of the Sector

Scoping the Sector is a statistical report which uses data collected from the voluntary and community sector of Stockton-on-Tees to give accurate informed estimates on the size and shape of the sector.

In its second year, Scoping the Sector 2014 looked at the “true worth” of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. This was done by putting a monetary  figure on the work of volunteers in our various organisations. The work of volunteers is what drives our sector, and it is what helps us to provide such an array of services.

Over 100 organisation’s responses were used in the analysis. The key findings of the research can be found below:

  • One volunteer hour in Stockton-on-Tees can be valued at £11.50
  • The total annual income of the VCSE in Stockton-on-Tees is over £25million
  • There is a total of 24,000 regular volunteers in the borough of Stockton-on-Tees
  • On average, a volunteer in Stockton-on-Tees gives 8.86 hours of time per week
