A Healthy Audience

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 30 May 2019

This 2019 report is based on updated research first conducted five years ago, in early 2014. The report looks at the relationship between the number of people with a particular medical condition or disability and the size of the largest charity supporting those affected. One of the key questions we try to answer is whether the number of people who have a condition determines the size of the charity associated with it. We have extended the report to include research looking at public perceptions of progress made by health charities.

Membership has long been a staple of organisations, clubs, and interest groups. But in the digital age, the concept of membership has been pushed to new frontiers. Now, it has expanded to include global online communities, subscription-based services, and access to perks for those who patron businesses and organisations. This digital membership revolution has decidedly changed how we think about communities and organisations, but is just one part of a bigger picture.
