State of the women’s sector survey reportMay2016 

Support services for women are under threat from an unprecedented level of public spending cuts, with many organisations losing staff, reducing services or closing altogether.  This is a report of an analysis of a survey of women’s voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) across the UK conducted by Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) during April/ May 2016. WRC has gathered this evidence to demonstrate how far the cuts have destabilised the women’s voluntary and community sector. The survey was conducted anonymously so that no data, information or comment can be attributed to any one organisation.
