New Survey to map the impact of cuts in London – deadline 31 May

The LVSC and partners have launched a third 'Big Squeeze' campaign to study the impact of the recession and public spending cuts on the capital's voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations and the people they serve.

The survey is an opportunity for organisations to voice the issues affecting them as a result of spending cuts and the recession. The information can help influence strategic policy and decision-makers to understand the impact of recent cuts and the recession and how this affects Londoners reliant on voluntary services. London’s VCS organisations are strongly encouraged to take part in the survey and have a say on how the cuts are affecting their organisations and the crucial services they provide.

The survey includes questions about:

  * how the economy and changes in policy are affecting your clients, demand on services and impacting on your organisation;

  * the impact of funding cuts on Londoners and your organisation;

  * lessons learned from challenges faced and how that learning can be taken forward

The partners for this year's Big Squeeze survey are: London Funders; Greater London Volunteering; MiNet; Race on the Agenda (ROTA); HEAR; Women's Resource Centre (WRC); London Civic Forum; LASA; Children England; City Bridge Trust; Stonewall Housing; London Community Resource Network and Ethical Property Foundation.
