What london s vcs services are facing lvsc research january 2012 at the local level
What London’s VCS services are facing: LVSC research January 2012 at the local level

  • 19 London boroughs had reliable figures for the % change of local authority funding for the local VCS.

  • Mean local authority cut from central Government = 4.8%

  • Mean cut to local authority funding of the VCS = 9.9%

  • 21 boroughs had reliable figures for the % change in local authority funding to the local Council for Voluntary Service (CVS).

  • Mean local authority cut from central Government = 4.8%

  • Mean local authority cut to CVS funding = 14.9%

  • On average London local authority cuts to their VCS have been disproportionately high

  • Local CVSs were likely to average even higher cuts proportionately than those experienced by frontline VCS organisations in the capital.

What has happened to funding for VCS services in London? London

Regionally

LVSC cuts research January 2012 January 2012

  • Inequality and levels of poverty continue to increase in London.

  • The Government’s benefit reforms have a disproportionately negative impact in London compared with the rest of the UK.

  • A range of research finds average cuts to funding of VCS organisations between a low of 9.9% (from London borough cuts data collected by LVSC) to 26% (from NCVO Voluntary Sector Cuts website) in the last year, with a total loss of public sector funding for the VCS across London of between £19m and £41m in 2011-12 alone.

  • Employment in the VCS has also decreased by almost 9% (from Labour Force survey data) between December 2010 – 11 with 60% of those losing their jobs being based in London (despite London accounting for only approximately 21% of the VCS workforce).


LVSC cuts research January 2012 January 2012

  • VCS organisations in the capital are more dependent upon public sector funding than rest of UK.

  • The cuts that individual local boroughs made to the VCS also suggest that services to other equalities groups such as women, LGBT communities, religious / common belief communities and refugees/asylum seekers are also being disproportionately cut.

  • Trust funding is being less drastically cut than public sector spending, corporate giving or individual donations. However, there is a higher than average proportion of London VCS organisations dependent upon public sector funding

  • ACEVO analysis of Transition Fund applications shows that the average total income lost by VCS organisations from London applying for the fund was around £370,000 (the highest of any region) or 43.6% of their average total income. The cumulative total income loss for charities applying for the Fund from London was £146million (covering 405 organisations).


So where will funding for the VCS come from in the future? January 2012

Public sector – down

Corporate – down

Trusts – maintaining but reserves declining

Individual giving - down
