Charity Futures have undertaken a research consultation in conjunction with Giving Evidence. We want to find out what research you - charities and donors - need to help you in your vital work. This essential exercise, outlined in our published protocol, will ensure that charitable activity is based on sound evidence.

May and June of 2018 saw us carry out five focus groups through an open 'crowd-sourcing' process in London, Edinburgh, Bradford and Manchester. They enabled us to hear the views of charity leaders, foundations, volunteers, consultants and other key stakeholders within the third sector. The insights provided at the sessions helped to shape our short survey, which we encourage you to complete and distribute amongst your own network. 

Thereafter, the data will be assessed and your calls to action prioritised in advance of a public dissemination of the results of the process. 

Should you have any queries about the process or wish to be involved beyond completing the survey, please contact Christopher Penny on
