Final Third Sector Trends report released

Third Sector Trends have released their fifth and final report, focussing on people, places and policy within the VCSE sector.

Third Sector Trends is the Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland’s ground-breaking study of the scale, dynamics and needs of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. It started in the North East and Cumbria 15 years ago and has expanded into other regions. Now, for the first time, the 2022 data covers the whole of England and Wales.
