VCFA enhances local community and voluntary action by developing the capacity of Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCF) organisations in Bury to provide support and deliver quality services. We will do this through
effective strategic engagement with our statutory partners and by forging alliances with local businesses and communities

Voluntary, Community and Faith Survey

Bury VCFA have jointly commissioned Salford University as our research partners to undertake the analysis and reporting of the State of the Sector Survey on our behalf.

This will provide us with an independent assessment of the VCF sector in Bury. Bury VCFA will share the final report. This will provide us with an up to date picture of the VCF sector in Bury, and can be used by organisations like yours as evidence for funding applications.

State of the Sector is a partnership piece of research led by 10GM working alongside GMCVO, Bury VCFA, Stockport Council, Trafford Council and Wigan Council.

Deadline for the survey is 25th September 2020. For more Information and to complete the survey, please click below
