The state of the sector

Key trends for voluntary sector organisations working with offenders and their families.

Over the last four years, Clinks has surveyed voluntary sector organisations working with offenders and their families to explore how healthy the sector is, the wellbeing of service users and to determine whether organisations are experiencing any new or existing challenges. As the sector is increasingly required to navigate a complex and shifting policy and commissioning environment, collecting this information is more important than ever, as it helps inform the support Clinks gives to its members, enabling them to continue their vital work.

The Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion supported Clinks with the survey questions and data analysis.
