As part of the Council’s desire to meet the challenges of 2020, it commissioned Newcastle CVS to produce a report on the current position of the voluntary and community sector, the support it needs and uses now, and looking to the future in 2020. In order to ensure independence, Newcastle CVS commissioned SkillsBridge to carry out interviews with local voluntary organisations.

These reports look at the position of Newcastle and its current challenges. The reports have a number of separate elements – interviews with 29 key public sector leaders, 20 local voluntary and community organisations, 10 key support (infrastructure) organisations, a survey of 71 local organisations and a background review of the key policies affecting the voluntary and community sector locally and nationally. The result is the most comprehensive study carried out for many years on behalf of the voluntary and community sector in Newcastle.
