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

Viewfinder 2 was circulated to 960 NICVA members during February 2004, 27% responded.

Key findings include:

  • Community Relations: 96% of respondents believed that the voluntary and community sector should have a role in community relations, with 84% of respondents were taking part in community relations work.
  • Task Force: 80% of respondents were aware of the Task Force but only half of respondents either agree or agree strongly that the Task Force has been working in an open and transparent way.
  • 60 Day Action Team: Only a tenth of respondents felt the 60 Day Action Team had made a difference to the bureaucracy attached to Peace II.
  • Civil Society: NICVA was the organisation that was trusted the most, followed by other voluntary organisations with political parties and major companies the least trusted.

Previous Viewfinder surveys are available on our Research page.
