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

The Viewfinder survey was circulated to 906 NICVA members during November 2003- 30% responded.

Key findings include:

  • Current Political Situation: Over two thirds of organisations believed that the suspension of devolution has had a negative effect on the voluntary and community sector.
  • Peace III: 91% of respondents believed that the Peace II administrative arrangements were unnecessarily complicated.
  • Business Involvement: 47% of organisations stated they have business representation on their committees with 80% believing that business involvement provides a degree of specialist knowledge that is otherwise lacking on their committees.
  • The Euro: 45% of organisations responding to Viewfinder did feel that the impact of the introduction of the Euro would be significant.
