Navca members growing much more optimistic about the future
Optimism has risen sharply among representative bodies for local charities, according to a quarterly survey published by Navca yesterday.
Local infrasutructure body Navca conducts quarterly surveys among its members, mostly councils for voluntary service. The latest survey was conducted in July 2015.
Navca has around 230 institutional members and the panel is intended to be a representative sample of all members. The most recent survey had 18 responses.
The survey found that 61 per cent of respondents were optimistic about the future in the short term, up from 35 per cent the previous year. This is the highest level of optimism among members since the survey began in 2012.
