Critical success factors for VCS projects
Case study: Research
Client: Worcestershire Voices
Work: Collect and analyse new data
We were commissioned by Worcestershire Voices (an umbrella organisation supporting the voluntary sector in Worcestershire) to undertake research into the critical factors in making a voluntary and community project a success.
We ran an online survey of voluntary and community services (VCS) organisations to identify a selection of successful voluntary and community projects in Worcestershire, with a good range by project type and beneficiaries.
We conducted interviews, held a workshop to discuss the early findings with stakeholders, and delivered a report on the critical success factors; whether they could be replicated elsewhere; and some snapshots of example successful projects.
