The Centre of People, Work and Organisational Practice (CPWO) have published a report from the second wave of their barometer survey which provides key insights into how the sector is responding to the pandemic and its wider social impacts.
This report is part of an ongoing project developed in partnership with NCVO, Sheffield Hallam University and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Find below a quick summary of the findings:
1 in 7 (14%) voluntary organisations are anticipating closure within the next year
Almost 2 in 5 (38%) expect their financial position to deteriorate over the next month
At the same time, over half (57%) of voluntary organisations are reporting an increase in demand for their services
While 2 in 5 (39%) voluntary organisations have used the Job Retention Scheme, almost half (47%) of these reported that it had a negative impact on the services they provide
