The Skills Exchange Project is carrying out a survey of the voluntary sector in England to find out more about attitudes towards cross-sector “skills exchange”.
This is what NCVO say about the survey:
NCVO is involved in the Skills exchange project which is being led by the government’s Office for Civil Society. (Further information below). The project aims to connect charities and business and raise the awareness of the benefits of skills-based volunteering for both the charity and business sectors. We hope to maximise cross sector skills-based volunteering, whilst preparing the groundwork for future legislation.
We would be very grateful if you could complete the short survey and share your views: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7P26WND
Please share with colleagues – skills based volunteering / ESV enthusiasts or not. It would be great to get a diverse set of views from across the voluntary sector in England on this topic.
Every survey submitted by a unique individual will be entered into a draw with a chance to win one of three £2,500 grants to your organisation from the Zurich Community Trust.
The deadline for completion is mid-August, with winners to be announced end of August.
This survey is being coordinated by the Zurich Community Trust, represented on the steering group by Pam Webb who is Head of the Zurich Community Trust. If you have any questions in respect of the survey itself, you can contact Pam at firstname.lastname@example.org .
