Your input needed: understanding the impact of charging fees for services - 13/02/2018

Increasingly, charities are charging their beneficiaries fees for services as a source of income. Yet little to no research exists to understand the impact of this decision. Flóra Raffai, CEO at local charity Cam Sight, is conducting research into this issue as part of her Masters at the University of Cambridge. Please help her in this research by filling out this survey:

Results from the survey will be presented in a report for CCVS members, as well as form part of her dissertation. It is crucial that all members fill out the survey, including those who do not charge or who used to charge. Please share the survey with your networks. The more responses gathered, the more meaningful the results for all of us.

The survey should take between 15-20 minutes to complete and will form an integral part of her research. All data collected will be anonymised and no identifiable information will be published. The deadline for responses is the 18th March.
