Flagship Report

Wirral CVS is pleased to share the 2023 flagship report for the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector in partnership with NHS Cheshire and Merseyside.

The State of the Sector report highlights extraordinary statistics and insights into the VCFSE sector across Cheshire and Merseyside, alongside the notable impact made possible

through the work carried out by the organisations and people in our sector.

Through analysis of findings from our region-wide state of the sector survey and external data, the report evidences the size, scale and scope of the VCFSE sector in Cheshire and Merseyside. Over 19,500 community organisations and businesses are working to support those in need, committed to building thriving neighbourhoods, communities, towns, and cities across C&M - these have been measured to show the immense size and scope of the sector. Alongside a combined workforce of over 36,000 employees and 351,000 volunteers, the VCFSE sector contributes over £896.6 million to the Cheshire and Merseyside economy each year.

The report identifies key opportunities to build upon to further unlock the potential of the VCFSE sector through effective partnership working within health and care systems, enabling the sector to be ambitious in tackling health inequalities and

providing social justice across Cheshire and Merseyside.

You can explore the key findings for Wirral in this report, and the full Cheshire and Merseyside report is available on Voluntary Sector North West’s website.
