Big Squeeze 2013

This year we are undertaking our annual Big Squeeze survey in September 2013. We are collecting information about the effects of the recession and subsequent policy decisions on Londoners and the voluntary and community sector groups that work with them. This year we are also looking at the impacts of welfare reform in London.

As a background to this year's Big Squeeze 2013  survey and report, please see the emerging story of cuts to VCS organisations' funding, the effect of welfare reforms and increasing inequality in London that LVSC has collected together through Storify.

For more on the impact of welfare reform in London in 2013, LVSC has collated our own and others' research in this report:
