Introduction

We need your help.

The voluntary and community response to COVID-19 has been phenomenal, but so has the impact on our sector.  As we move from response to recovery we must measure the impact and the support needed by our sector, to be able to continue the amazing work that is done for the benefit of our communities.

We appreciate that everyone is under enormous pressure; however, this is exactly the time we need this information so that we can help you.

For us to do this we need your help.  If you could complete our State of The Sector in Dorset & BCP Survey – This time we are looking to assess the impact across Pan-Dorset, as we are aware that many of you work across all areas, as a result DCA & CAN are partnering together to collect data and we will ensure that the results are shared with decision-makers, both locally and nationally.  We will also make sure that the support DCA & CAN provides will be directly linked to the support you need. The survey shouldn’t take more than 12 minutes of your time.

It would be helpful if you could complete the survey by Friday 30th April.

Thank you for your time and stay safe.
