The indicator will be measured every second year by a new, bespoke, centrally administered survey of local third sector organisations. The survey will also include contextual questions covering, for example, the quality of funding relationships and partnership working between the third sector and local statutory bodies. This will give local authorities more information to understand what may be driving their performance against the headline indicator.
