Overview of the impact of cuts on local organisations


NAVCA has published a report collating local state of the sector reports produced by NAVCA members to provide an overview of the impact of cuts on local charities and community groups. The report includes the findings of a NAVCA members’ survey, carried out in May, showing how cuts are also affecting the support available to local charities. The report establishes several key trends emerging from local surveys of the sector conducted by NAVCA members:

  • The majority of local charities and community groups have suffered cuts, although some areas are suffering more than others.
  • Local charities and community groups are facing increased demand for their services and a significant proportion say they are unable to meet these demands.
  • Children and young people’s organisations are consistently reported as being particularly affected by cuts in funding. In many areas, organisations that work with the most deprived communities have also faced significant cuts or are likely to do so in the near future.
