Wessex Community Action is undertaking a State of the Sector survey to gather data and information about the health of Wiltshire’s voluntary, community, and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in order to inform our discussions with key stakeholders and shape the support available to the sector to be resilient and thrive.
Our previous “Covid-19 Impact Surveys” revealed the pandemic’s impact in terms of reduced income and volunteer numbers and increased demand for services, and these findings were shared in meetings with the Bank of England and Wiltshire Council. This year’s survey will be of particular value in informing members of the Bath, North East Somerset, and Wiltshire Integrated Care System (BSW ICS), raising awareness about the sector, the challenges faced and support required.
The effectiveness of the survey relies on your response and we’d like to hear from a wide cross-section of VCSE organisations – from small grass-roots organisations working in local communities with no (or few) paid staff to the large county-wide charities. The Survey will take around 15-20 minutes of your time to complete. Please complete the survey by Friday 27th May – Take part here
We value your time and as a thank you for sharing your views, you will have the opportunity to be included in a draw to receive 2 free training places on a course offered by Wessex Community Action.
