The growth of Community Interest Companies (CICs) collectively has exceeded all expectations, with over 10,000 now operating in every area of Civil Society and across the UK. Something very special is happening with the first new company legislation in 150 years. The CIC Association has launched a survey to provide a real snapshot of the amazing work being achieved by individuals and organisations across the UK.
The survey will also act as a benchmark document for the first 10 years of CIC. The existing evidence base is fragmented and research immature. This questionnaire will explore the internal dynamics of CICs, how we interact with our environments and how such factors influence development, activities and function – and the complexities of delivering on a multiple-bottom line.
The CIC Association is resource limited but this questionnaire will help communicate a lot of information at very little cost to a lot of stakeholders. It is built upon existing questionnaire frameworks to ensure the data can be useful to the wider community. Help paint the picture and improve awareness and understanding of what CIC is all about.
All raw data will be treated confidentially. It will be used to help build a baseline from which to develop a common agenda. Any opinions supplied will be published in a non-attributable form so please be assured you may answer candidly.Click here to take the questionnaire >>>>
