This is the second in a continuing series of Snapshot Surveys conducted  by ComVoices.  The first was in 2014.

The survey is called a ‘snapshot’ because it is designed to give an understanding of the NGO sector at a given time.  The results corroborate other sector research and help us to quantify the anecdotal evidence we hear from the sector.

ComVoices distributes the results to inform and influence government policy, political party policy, Ministers, politicians, the public service, other key influencers and the sector itself.

The 2016 survey shows that the stresses on our community organisations are increasing.  We are experiencing greater demand for services and are dealing with greater complexity, but with less funding from government and a greater reliance on alternative funding sources.
