NCVO’s Almanac is the definitive reference publication for anybody interested in the voluntary sector, and its role in civil society. It draws together trends, facts and information from our own research programme, plus the latest available data from government surveys, academic research, and research by voluntary organisations.

The Almanac gives a compelling overview of the voluntary sector’s scope and characteristics in difficult times, including their finances, workforce, and how they are changing over time.
