Building Back Better & Stronger: Event Invitation and Voluntary Sector Impact Survey

by | Dec 2, 2020 | Community Development, News

Wessex Community Action has extended an invitation to a virtual ‘Voluntary Sector Forum’ event on Tuesday 15th December.

The virtual forum will bring together charities, voluntary and community groups from across Wiltshire to look at both the challenges facing the sector as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also the opportunities. The event aims to discuss how can we meet opportunities and how the sector can build on its collective strengths to move forward and thrive.

Wessex Community Action is also undertaking a Voluntary Sector Impact Survey, with support from Community First and Wiltshire Community Foundation. The survey aims to discover the impact of Covid-19 on VCSE organisations including their beneficiaries, volunteers, staff and finances. The survey results will inform our conversations with funders and governing bodies, shape our service and ensure the sector has the support it needs now and, in the future, to build back better and stronger.

The following link will take you to the survey questions:

Please complete this survey by 21st December.   

If you have not already done so, please also take a minute to register on the new community platform Wiltshire Together. This fantastic new free platform connects people, groups and organisations in Wiltshire to their community, as well as helping organisations share activities, events and volunteer opportunities.
