Looking for key facts and figures about the wider third sector?

NCVO has just announced publication of its Civil Society Almanac 2015, now in its 14th edition.

The Almanac is the industry-standard source of data regarding virtually every aspect of the voluntary sector and there will be few who haven’t made use of some information from it at some time.

Now, I may be ‘misremembering’, but I don’t recall the Almanac previously being available online in what appears to be its entirety. Well, it is now. Yes, there is exclusive content for registered NCVO members, but the volume of information and data available simply by visiting the NCVO website is huge. A terrific resource.

 Where to start — NCVO tips on how to use the data.
