Participant Information Sheet

The University of Wolverhampton is carrying out this survey on behalf of the voluntary and community sector across the city, supported by the City of Wolverhampton Council. 

Your responses will inform a report to be published in early summer 2021, which will illustrate the impact the sector delivers for communities and local partners, the challenges faced, and the support needed.

The results will directly influence the Council and its partners, in order to work better with the voluntary and community sector.

If you are a voluntary and community organisation or group, we want to hear from you.

No group is too small or too large – we want to hear from any not-for-profit group delivering any type of community activity or service in Wolverhampton – from small community groups delivering informal social activities to national charities delivering commissioned services – all views are important.

The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete and you will need information from your latest accounts to answer all the questions.

What we will ask you

We will ask you to provide information about your organisation's work, staffing, volunteers, beneficiaries, finances, support needs, and your views on leadership.

All the information you provide will be held in confidence and in accordance with data protection legislation. We will not share your organisation name or individual responses with anyone outside of the University, and when we write our report, we will ensure no individual organisation will be identifiable from their answers. We will share the report with the sector and local partners once completed.
