NICVA's Centre for Economic Empowerment (CEE) programme is a think-tank, set up to help the sector become better informed about economic issues and take part more effectively in economic policy debates. We carry out research, and run training courses and masterclasses on a wide range of currrent economic issues.
This viewfinder survey focuses on the current economic environment and competition, the impact of public sector cuts, sources of income in the sector, training provision, social enterprises, staffing and volunteers.
This Viewfinder survey looks at awareness of the new Charity Commission and preparedness for the new regulations; the Code of Good Governance; collaborative working and mergers; the impact of the economic recession and volunteering.
This research investigates how the impact of the recession is affecting organisations within the voluntary and community sector, and how these organisations are dealing with these effects.
