Mapping the health of VCSE


Is it possible to use 360G datasets that have national coverage to map the health of the VCSE sector? Through looking at data covering Greater Manchester there did seem to be anomalies that suggested that grant activity was less in some areas than others. Through further investigation with local authorities this seemed to correlate with the reduction in voluntary sector support services. Is this an anomaly or indicative of something bigger?


This is similar to the topic I’ve posted and the mapping I’ve done for Birmingham has been productive. This is in terms of the data having some correlation with anecdotal info, but also with where there’s has been ongoing infrastructure (via community hubs) and where we know civic action to be higher, lower etc.
