Taking Account

Taking Account 4

We are committed to making sure we are well informed about the local voluntary and community sector so that we can be effective in representing our membership. This means that we sometimes conduct our own research.

 

Taking Account

What is Taking Account?
Taking Account is the economic and social audit of the voluntary and community sector in Brighton and Hove. This is open to the entire sector, not just Community Works members. This audit is repeated every five years. It evidences the significant contribution that the voluntary and community sector makes to life in the city, and provides information about the support needs of the sector.

Why is Taking Account important to your organisation?
The Taking Account audit gathers data that is used as evidence of the range, scope and impact of the work the community and voluntary sector in Brighton and Hove. The data is used by funders, commissioners, planners, politicians and researchers to understand more about the community and voluntary sector in Brighton and Hove and the value that we add to the city.

It is a chance to make the impact of the sector visible, enabling it to demonstrate its contribution to the social and economic wellbeing of the city and its people. The more organisations that contribute, the stronger our voice will be.
