LVSC carried out its Big Squeeze survey and produced a report
every year following the beginning of the economic recession in
2009. It, therefore, provides a picture of the impact on London's
voluntary and community sector and the people who use their
services over time.

At the launch of London Voluntary Service Council's Big Squeeze
report in July 2009 London's Mayor Boris Johnson highlighted the
valuable work charities undertake in a recession .
"Now, more than ever, is when community and voluntary groups come
into their own by helping Londoners through the downturn. Whether
guiding them towards work opportunities, or offering financial
advice, they have a crucial role to play and I will continue to
work closely with the sector to help with their valuable work,
wherever I can."
