Help the Hospices and NCVO Third Sector Foresight worked together between October 2008 and March 2009 to research the drivers of change most relevant to hospices, primarily independent hospices. Outcomes of this work include a final report, summarising many of our findings, and the detailed specialist sector drivers listed below.

As part of this work, we also looked at how general drivers will impact on hospices. Take a look at the drivers listed under 'Other relevant drivers' to see our comments.

You can make notes on drivers and collect the most relevant ones by saving them to your profile.

Feeling overwhelmed?

As you can see, there are many drivers that are shaping the future of voluntary and community organisations. The good news is that you can put most of them to one side in your own strategic planning.

Read our introduction to strategic analysis and find out how to sort and prioritise drivers. The guide takes you through the five stages of strategic analysis and there are templates to download to help you organise your thoughts.
