Fast Forward: West Midlands survey of museums

Fast Forward is a report published every two years by Renaissance, showing the health of the organisations in the region. This years Fast Forward has shown us the starting effects of local authority cuts, and we can only hope that the hard work the sector (and its volunteers) will be enough to sustain ourselves.

Fact Pack extract from Fast Forward Executive Summary:
At least 7,700 people work for and in museums in the West Midlands. Of these 5,400 are volunteers.

Over 320,000 hours of unpaid work are contributed by over 5,400 volunteers to the museums sector in the West Midlands.

The economic value of volunteering in the sector is over £4.2m.
