Completing the survey

Feedback from Phase 1 has been very positive. The guidance is easy to follow and it typically took between one and two person days of time to compile the cost and income data required. Time needed will depend on how data about your funding and cost structure is organised.  All data received will be treated with the strictest confidentiality and only anonymised data will be shown in the the reports we distribute.


Only anonymised data will be shown in the published reports, and you will only be able to see how your NGO compares to average and fits within the ranges of results from other NGOs, (whose names will be blanked out).  Detailed sector-wide analysis will also only be distributed to participating NGOs.  Participating NGOs have asked that such data be ket confidential to participating organisations.
