Our State of the Sector Follow Up Survey

The voluntary and community response to COVID-19 has been phenomenal, but so has the impact on our sector.  As we move from towards recovery we must measure the impact and support needed by our sector.

We are looking to assess the impact across Pan-Dorset, as a result we are partnering with CAN to collect data and we will ensure that the results are shared with decision-makers, both locally and nationally.
