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

Durham University is conducting a vital long-term study of voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises, cooperatives, community businesses and informal clubs, groups and societies.

It is hoped that you will find the survey interesting. You can do the survey on your phone, tablet or laptop. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and you shouldn’t need to check up any facts and figures to fill it in.


Using the findings they can build a picture of how organisations and groups work, how they get their resources and what they achieve. This helps to inform national and local government, health organisations and charitable foundations to make beneficial decisions on how to invest in the third sector. It also helps the third sector itself show the extent and value of the work it does.

The project is supported by Community Foundation serving Tyne & Wear and Northumberland, Power to Change and Garfield Weston Foundation
