Viewfinder is a NICVA survey, distributed to members four times a year which focuses on issues that currently affect the sector.

In March 2014 the Viewfinder 16 questionnaire was made available online to 906 NICVA member organisations. In total 125 organisations fully responded to the survey generating a response rate of 12.5%.

Key findings include:

  • 52% of responding organisations that have submitted a receipt of payments for grant claims have experienced delays in payment.
  • 14% of respondents reported that open data was being talked about in their organisation.
  • Over 75% of responding organisations stated they need support with reviewing governance arrangements for the board and help with reviewing their governing document respectively.
  • 93.2% of responding organisations believe the media is either very important or somewhat important in shaping public opinion in Northern Ireland.

Previous Viewfinder surveys are available on our Research page.
