THCVS State of the Sector Report 2023

The current climate in the voluntary and community sector in 2023 is a challenging one with a combination of factors including a difficult funding environment, a cost-of-living crisis, rising costs, and increased demand for services. This is true across the sector nationally but is particularly acute in Tower Hamlets with its high levels of poverty and disadvantage combined with the uncertainty caused by the end of the Local Community Fund programme.

To help us and the wider sector to examine what these needs are and what forms of infrastructure support would be most beneficial we conducted a survey into the state of the sector in 2023. We received 84 in-depth responses to this survey from our partners and members.

We also received pro bono support through Superhighways to conduct research into Charity Commission and 360 Giving data.
