Is your charity thriving, struggling, just surviving...?

Every two years Third Sector and NfpSynergy run the State of the Sector Survey to gauge conditions and sentiment in UK charities. As the next general election approaches, the survey is live again and we want to hear from you about...

  • charity income and independence
  • the government’s record
  • public service contracts
  • the regulation of fundraising

...and much more. The survey only takes a few minutes, and  we will enter participants who leave their email address in a draw to win one of 20 Amazon vouchers for £20.
