Crowdsourcing the cuts
[update Jan 2011: we've now launched the successor to crowdsourcing the cuts - a collaborative initiative called Voluntary Sector Cuts.]
Following the £6 billion cuts package announced by the government on Monday - expertly analysed by Karl - NCVO wants your help to assess the impact of these cuts on the voluntary and community sector.
To do this we want to "crowdsource" data on cuts - and that means we need your help. We'd like our members and other voluntary and community organisations to share their experience of cuts over the next year.
So if you've been told that your statutory funding will be cut, head to our survey form and enter your details.
This exercise isn't just about NCVO gathering intelligence on the scale of the challenges this year - we want this vital data to be available to everyone. That's why we're sharing a spreadsheet with all the results - if you don't want your data to be shared but want to tell us about cuts anonymously then you can also email your thoughts to email@example.com.
And lastly, we're also interested to hear about wider implications of the funding environment - innovation spurred on by decreasing resources, or an increase in need in your service area. Post your thoughts and comments below.
