The contribution and value of the VCSE sector in East Sussex
This report explores the value and contribution of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in East Sussex – including how the sector responded to Covid-19 and how people see the sector’s future. As well as a detailed look at the positive contribution organisations are making in East Sussex specifically, we offer an interesting perspective on how to present the value of the voluntary sector in a way that goes beyond traditional ‘impact’ or economic metrics; and explores how funders, the public sector and VCSEs can best support each other in the future.
We hope this work informs both future thinking about cross-sector collaboration in East Sussex; and how other local authorities consider the contribution and value of the voluntary sector.
