Big Society Funding Community Interest Company is delighted to have been commissioned to carry out a pioneering study which will shape investment in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) in the years to come.
The important 'state of the sector' research will establish the economic impact of VCSE organisations in Norfolk and Suffolk. We have been asked to carry out the three-month project for a partnership led by Norfolk County Council with Suffolk County Council and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.
The results will be compiled into a public report called the State of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector in Norfolk and Suffolk.
This data will be fed back to New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, and used to inform their strategic objectives, explore funding opportunities and support more long-term investment in the sector.
Please help by filling in the survey and attending one of the locality events. Your contribution will help us create an accurate picture of how the sector contributes to the local economy and could influence funding priorities in the future.
