  • National volunteering information
  • National charity information and publications
  • North West VCFS data
  • Cheshire East information
  • Impact measurement
  • Brexit

We also have a range of resources covering specialist topics including:

  • Addiction 
  • BAME 
  • Campaigning and lobbying
  • Crisis support
  • Learning disabilities
  • LGBTQ+
  • Mental health
  • Older people
  • Physical disabilities
  • Prisoners and ex-offenders
  • Social prescribing
  • Young people’s mental health

We are continually adding to the Intelligence Hub as more information becomes available. If you have any suggestions for additional material for the Hub, please contact Suzanne Thomas at suzanne.thomas@cvsce.org.uk
