About this survey

Surveys to assess the health of the women’s sector in the North East were conducted annually by NEWomen's Network from 2009 to 2012. The survey was conducted again in 2015 and the findings provided a baseline for the ‘Women’s Commissioning Support Unit pilot in the North East of England.

Women's Resources Centre are repeating this survey to give a picture of what changes have taken place in the North East women's sector during the intervening three years.

The purpose of gathering this data is to monitor the impact of economic recession and austerity measures upon the women sector. The survey findings of will be used to inform future developments to sustain and strengthen women's voluntary and community organisations in the North East.

The Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) is the leading national umbrella organisation for the women’s sector, working towards linking all aspects of the women’s movement. WRC support its members to be more effective and sustainable through training, and we lobby the government on their behalf on a range of women’s issues. www.wrc.org.uk
