Somerset VCSE State of the Sector Survey

In partnership with the Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum, Spark Somerset have launched the second Somerset VCSE State of the Sector Survey.

The survey, which will be run every three years, gives VCSE organisations large and small an opportunity to tell Spark Somerset about their organisation, the great work they do, and any challenges they face. It explores key areas such as income and expenditure, volunteering and workforce and has become a valuable resource for the voluntary and community sector.

The first State of the Sector Survey was run in 2016, and the findings were used to help lobby and fundraise in the area. In addition, the information was used to inform local government and funders of the scale and impact of the sector.

Spark Somerset are seeking views from a diverse range of charities, community groups and social purpose organisations working in the county.

You can take part in the survey at: To request a paper copy of the survey, please email The survey closes on 14th January 2020.

The survey will take around 20 minutes to complete and all entries will be added to a prize draw to win £250 for your organisation (terms and conditions apply), courtesy of Somerset Community Foundation.
