EVALUATION OF THE LOCAL SUSTAINABILITY FUND PUBLISHED

30th Jan 2018

NCVO has published the report of the evaluation of the Local Sustainability Fund. 

This was a £20million programme funded by the Office for Civil Society and managed by the Big Lottery Fund, which was announced in June 2015 and funded 257 organisations across the UK. The fund aimed to build the strength, resilience and sustainability of small and medium-sized frontline voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisstions that offer needed and effective services to vulnerable disadvantaged people.

The report found that:

- 94% of grant holders reported improvements in the 'strength, sustainabilty and resilience' of their organisation over the course of their LSF project

- Nearly half (45%) felt this was 'predominantly due to LSF' while a further 51% said they felt it was 'partially to do with LSF'

- Larger organisations were more likely to have seen bigger positive changes in their sustainability score than smaller ones.
