Take part in the biggest survey of charities, voluntary and community organisations in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin!

The survey has been created and launched by Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly (VCSA) to provide an up-to-date picture of the local VCSE sector and build up a valuable evidence base of information.

By taking part in the survey, you will be helping to inform funders, partners and other key stakeholders of the current state and needs of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) in Shropshire.  Please answer all questions in the survey to your best knowledge to help us build up a robust evidence base.

Survey questions are categorised into four themes; information on organisations, partnership working, challenges/achievements over the past 12 months and looking ahead to the next 12 months.

Complete the survey and ensure that your voice is heard! Thank you for helping to present a powerful and robust message for the sector in the county by completing the survey and encouraging other VCSE contacts to do so.

Those organisations who opt to provide contact information and complete the survey may request to receive a unique infographic highlighting some of the information they provided that can be used for funding or other communications purposes (see details at the end of the survey).

The survey can be completed in less than 20 minutes. Please only complete one per organisation.
