This research quantifies the potential impact of the loss of funding to the voluntary and community sector post 2006. The report demonstrates how important the voluntary sector is to improving the region's quality of life and shows that the sector faces big challenges in the future.

A 21st Century Voluntary & Community Sector for Yorkshire and the Humber

A 21st Century Voluntary & Community Sector for Yorkshire and the Humber (PDF: 428.51KB)

This research report surveys income and activity across voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations in Yorkshire and the Humber. Professor Gary Craig calls for the region and the VCS to take a longer term view of the web of voluntary activity and the ways in which it is supported.

The research demonstrates the increasingly important role the VCS plays in helping deliver services ranging from meals on wheels to school support.

It also clearly shows how the VCS adds additional economic value as well as social and community benefits. The VCS has achieved what it has almost invisibly and the report calls for the region to work with the VCS to engage in an open dialogue that defines its role.
