This has begun now. I think it's obviously worth watching and seeing how it pans out. It would be interesting too if people wanted to share their thoughts on the research, including the methods
Below is the email to those agreeing to take part (has anyone refused?) and, below that, the link to the NfP datasheet they refer to:
Thank you for agreeing to take part in this piece of research. As requested please find a link to the datasheet here [copy from ilegal server], which outlines some of the key questions we will be asking in the survey. It would be useful if you can first review these questions then see if you can find an answer for those which you are uncertain of using your internal records.
The survey aims to collect information from organisations in the not-for-profit advice sector. The last survey of this type took place in 2005. Since then, the legal and not for profit landscape has shifted significantly and there is no clear picture of the number and nature of not-profit-organisations and the legal advice they provide. This survey will help bridge the evidence gap. It also offers advice providers a valuable opportunity to say how recent reforms have affected them and their clients and will help provide an up to date picture of the sector for use by the MoJ, members of the sector and other agencies/departments.
Legal advice refers to the provision of advice in the following categories of law:
-Special educational needs (SEN)
-Education (not including SEN)
-Immigration and asylum
-Family mediation - Welfare Benefits
-Employment – no discrimination
-Actions against the police
The study has been commissioned by the Ministry of Justice. Your views will not be attributed to you personally in any analysis or provided to anyone at the Ministry of Justice.
All the information Ipsos MORI collect will be kept in the strictest confidence (in accordance with the Data Protection Act and Market Research Society Code of Conduct).
The overall results will be published and made available.
