How is your organisation adapting to the covid-19 challenges?


Dear Local Voluntary and Community Sector,

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that as well as local people being hit hard by the lockdown, so has your organisation, too.

That’s why I’m asking you to take a few minutes to fill in the Islington VCS Covid-19 Survey.

By completing the survey you:

• Help yourself – and – us get a complete picture of how VCS groups are being affected (we will share the results as soon as we can)
• Find out what the sector’s immediate issues and needs are
• Can use the results as research to quote in your own funding applications
• By looking at our present needs in the round, give yourselves a first chance to reflect on what we might need to do in the future – when things go back to normal (or not)
• And on your behalf we will share the results with the Council, local funders and other partners to help them shape their support to the sector
So please do invest a few minutes of your time in completing our VCS Covid-19 Survey – the quicker you can, the faster we can do an analysis of your replies for you.


Please complete it by 9am on 4th May

Everyone stay safe and well.

Antony Bewick-Smith
Interim Chief Executive
