Community Action Suffolk

A research project has been launched at the University of Suffolk, to find out how much people understand about the charity sector.

Community Action Suffolk has commissioned the work to help improve support for all charities and social enterprises running around the region.

A brief online survey aims to capture opinions on everything from volunteering to local giving, and why people care about the charities they support.

Pete Richardson, CEO of Community Action Suffolk, said: “Gaining a true understanding of how the third sector is perceived in Suffolk, and how the community engage with voluntary organisations – or would want to – is a vital tool in helping us assist the county’s many groups, clubs, and causes.”

Dr Olumide Adisa, a member of the Suffolk Institute for Social and Economic Research (SISER), is leading the research. She said, “This is a fantastic opportunity to gather valuable insights from the Suffolk community about the voluntary sector.”
