Thank you for your interest in this research. The aim of this survey is to find out how the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Somerset has adapted and responded to Covid-19, showcase its impact, and identify what is needed to help it develop and grow in the future. 
 
Together, we want to look at what has happened during the past 18 months, and more importantly, focus on what we need to do as a sector to reflect, recover and renew.  

We want to hear from a diverse range of organisations from across Somerset. Whether you work or volunteer with a large regional organisation, a small local community group, or anything in between, please get involved and have your say!  

This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will close on 1 October. If you would like to receive this survey in another format, need support to take part, or have any questions about the project, please email support@sparksomerset.org.uk

When the survey has closed, Spark Somerset will be hosting a series of online events and focus group to explore the findings and emerging topics in more depth. Details of these will be made available on the Spark Somerset website (www.sparksomerset.org.uk) or sent to selected participants by email. 

This project is being delivered by Spark Somerset, Somerset Community Foundation and Somerset County Council with support from Community Council for Somerset, Diversity Voice, Frome Town Council, Somerset Activity & Sport Partnership and Somerset Association of Local Councils

Thank you for your continued support.
