Welcome to One East Midlands' second annual survey of voluntary and community sector organisations in the East Midlands, which should take you about five minutes to complete and gives you an opportunity to input your views on what is happening to the sector in the region.

This survey is divided into two parts, each 10 questions in length, with this being part one. Once you have completed part one visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/GQBNDR9 to complete part two.

The closing date for the survey is Friday 1 November.

We will continue to carry out the survey on a yearly basis.The results of the survey, and all future surveys, will be shared through the One East Midlands website (www.oneeastmidlands.org.uk) and e-bulletins, and with key partners, including national VCS organisations, MPs and local authorities in the region.

To view a copy of the results of the 2012 survey visit www.oneeastmidlands.org.uk/2012emvcsannualsurveyreport.

Thank you in advance for taking part.
