Partnership for Young London and Children England are exploring the impact austerity and policy change is having on voluntary sector organisations working with children and families. As a part of this, they have developed a quick survey for voluntary organisations - could you forward this survey to voluntary organisations in your borough and ask them to complete it? Any information they provide will be confidential.
The survey is available at:
It asks questions on the following:

• the levels of need and risk presented by service users
• the levels of available support and training on safeguarding
• and any trends and changes that VCSE orgs are experiencing in the multi-agency context (e.g. changing thresholds, higher risk/complexity referrals).
Focus groups and case studies will also be carried out and the findings from these and the survey will contribute to a report to be published by the end of the year. ‘Beneath The Threshold’ builds on the work undertaken by Children England’s ‘Perfect Storms’, and also Partnership for Young London’s ‘25%, Reviewing commissioning of youth services across London.’
