Coronavirus Relief Fund survey results have been published

We are really grateful to all 222 organisations that responded to our recent online survey. We’d also like to thank the 14 local organisations working across a range of needs that were interviewed by video conferencing or phone as part of our research.

We have listened to how the local voluntary sector has responded to the initial phase of the Coronavirus outbreak and learned more about plans and challenges for the future. We’ve also learned about emerging needs and how the pandemic is affecting people across the County. The findings will help us shape our grant-making in response to the Coronavirus pandemic and further information will be released in the coming weeks.
