Sector tackles challenges in new N Ireland survey

A new survey of third sector organisations in Northern Ireland reveals that they are confident about their prospects, despite a challenging environment and significant decreases in government funding.

The¬†Ulster Bank & CO3 Third Sector Index found that in the last quarter government funding fell for almost a third of those surveyed, and over three quarters saw the operating environment as “very or quite challenging”. The index is based on a quarterly survey of CO3 members.
