Introduction and your organisation

Thank you for clicking through to this survey.  We are Shift, a social research and design charity.  This survey is on the financing needs for social purpose organisations and is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Shift will be making available the key findings from this research project.  If you would like to receive the key findings by email there is an opportunity at the end of the survey to provide an email address where we can send them. 

The findings of this research will be used to inform work with funders on opportunities and barriers within the existing funding environment for social purpose organisations. 

The length of the survey will vary depending on the answers you give, but should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes on average.  The instructions on the screen should be all that you need to complete the survey, but if you encounter any technical problems then please contact Duncan Fogg on
