UK Civil Society Almanac 2012
The new Civil Society Almanac – now in its 11th edition – draws together trends, facts and information from our own research programme, plus the latest available data from government surveys, academic research, and research by voluntary organisations.
The Almanac is aimed at policy makers and practitioners with an interest in voluntary organisations and civil society. It reports key trends and characteristics on a range of topics, including funding and finance, spending, workforce and employment, volunteering and beneficiaries.
The Almanac focuses on how voluntary organisations at the heart of civil society have changed over the last decade, often comparing trends with the public and private sectors.
NCVO believes its members and those with a stake in civil society need the best quality evidence base to help them inform policy and practice and plan for the future.
"In attempting to gauge civil society in this way, the Almanac is breaking new ground." The Guardian
