[Survey] COVID-19 and Voluntary Sector Organisations: Impact and Response

  • Print

COVID-19 is having a major impact on the entire Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) Sector.To assess its effect on the sector, researchers have secured funding from Economic and Social Research Council to conduct an investigation into the way that COVID-19 is impacting the sector and how organisations are responding.

As part of the project, researchers will be conducting a monthly barometer which will run for 15 months, from mid-September 2020 to November 2021. This barometer is unique as the results will be publicly updated monthly.

Organisations can use the results to compare themselves against those of similar type and size. The barometer will have a dashboard, that allows organisations to see how their experiences compare to other organisations. This will help organisations better understand how they are doing and learn lessons from others.

Every month, organisations completing the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win £200. At the end of the project all participating organisations will be entered into a prize draw to win £2,000.
