UPDATE (03/06/19): Please note that the survey has now ended. The prize draw will take place in the next few days.
Further to this post, the Birmingham Social Enterprise City steering group is conducting a baseline survey to establish key facts about the sector’s social and economic contribution.
The survey is aimed at social enterprises, co-operatives, mutuals, trading third sector organisations, and charities with trading or social enterprise arms. Completion time is about 10-15 minutes. Please note that there has been some confusion regarding what we mean by ‘trading’ and some organisations have in some cases wrongly identified themselves as not trading when in fact they are. To be clear, in questions 2 and 4 which refer to ‘trading’ we mean: offering goods or services for sale, whether to end-users, commissioners or under contract to third parties who pay you to undertake work.
UPDATE: Free prize draw deadline further extended: Every completed questionnaire will be entered in our FREE prize draw. The 1st prize is an iPad 9.7in.* The 2nd prize is a Madlug backpack, with a matching backpack donated to a child in care.**
Please support this effort — and the sector — by taking the survey. The more completions we get, the better the evidence-base we can produce. And a strong evidence-base makes a critical difference to the resources we can attract to support the continuing development of the sector.
* & **: Closing date for entry in the free prize draw is 10am on Wed 29th May 2019. Winners will be announced the following week.
