Clinks state of the sector survey

22nd May 2019

Clinks have launched their 2019 State of the sector survey. This is your chance to tell your story and help Clinks to influence key decision makers on your behalf.

Tell Clinks about the challenges you and your clients have been facing over the last year and share your successes.

Clinks heard from over 190 of you last year and analysed the financial data of over 1,400 organisations, giving them vital evidence on how the voluntary sector in criminal justice is faring. Clinks regularly meet with HM Prison and Probation Service and the Ministry of Justice to speak up on behalf of voluntary organisations and to capitalise on opportunities for the sector.

But Clinks need up to date evidence to do this effectively. That’s why they’re asking as many of you as possible to complete this short survey. Your anonymised responses will contribute to a report which will highlight changes and challenges the voluntary sector and its service users are experiencing and how organisations are adapting.

If you’re from a voluntary organisation working with people in contact with the criminal justice system or their families, help Clinks raise the issues that matter to you and prioritise their work to best meet your needs.

How do I take part?

The survey will ask about your organisation’s criminal justice work including the clients you support, commissioning and referrals, staffing and volunteers. Please have numbers ready from the 2018-2019 financial year. The survey takes 15 minutes to complete.

Don’t miss your chance to be heard, respond by 5th July.
