3 month follow up – VCSE Sector Financial Sustainability Survey November 14

In August 2022, the VSI Alliance gathered initial feedback and insight on the financial sustainability of the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) Sector in Calderdale.  The information was then presented at the Calderdale Collaborative Community Partnership Board (3CPB), part of Calderdale Cares.

Thank you to all who participated in the first survey.  We have now launched a 3 month follow-up survey including questions on the impact of the cost of living crisis and staffing and recruitment in the VCSE Sector.

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes and we’d really appreciate your input to help contribute to as big a picture as possible about the current financial situation for our sector.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 14th November.
