The 12 Reports of Christmas 2016

The time has come again to reflect on the last 12 months and thank our clients and partners for inspiring us to keep researching topical issues in the sector. As part of our Social Investment programme, we regularly produce free reports and feed our findings back to the sector so any charity regardless of size or sector can find something useful. Here are 12 of the most popular free reports we released this year.
