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

In August 2011 the Viewfinder 10 questionnaire was circulated to 930 NICVA member organisations generating a response rate of 38% (356 returns).

Key findings include:

  • Overall 58% of responding organisations have been affected by funding cuts in public expenditure.
  • 84% of respondents currently work in collaboration with other organisations.
  • Of those organisations working collaboratively, 77% aim to increase their current levels of collaboration.
  • 46% of organisations that are not currently working collaboratively aim to so do over the coming year.
  • Just over half of respondents (53%) believe that the newly elected Northern Ireland Ministers do not have an understanding of the value of the sector.

Previous Viewfinder surveys are available on our Research page.
