Understanding the impact of Covid-19 on voluntary, community and social enterprises in North Somerset

North Somerset Council and Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) are working together to support our community’s response to the current pandemic. We would like to develop an understanding about the impact that COVID-19 has had on your organisation both now and as we move forward from the current crisis to recovery. We are aware that many organisations have rapidly changed their service delivery models to continue to meet the needs of their service users/participants/volunteers etc. It would be helpful to capture this great work but to also understand the possible challenges that the pandemic poses for your group/organisation now and for the future. 

We would appreciate you taking a few minutes to share your views through our North Somerset Together survey.

Please respond to our survey by midnight on 11th June 2020.

All responses will be held by North Somerset Council and shared with VANS as the Voluntary and Community sector infrastructure lead organisation for North Somerset.  Responses will be anonymised before any data is made public. We may also contact you to discuss your responses if it would help with our evidence gathering.

The report collated from the responses provided will be used to inform and influence opportunities to support the sector going forward.
