Covid-19 briefings

Experiences of the voluntary sector during 2020/21.

Recognising the tremendous pressure that charity leaders and the health sector were under as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, we started facilitating online peer support groups in April 2020. The aim was to create a space for leaders to share challenges, dilemmas and worries, and to learn from each other’s experiences.

These briefings share the kinds of challenges that faced different groups, and the support they needed.

‘Be brave’, ‘be flexible’, ‘trust us’, ‘be clear and open’, ‘understand the pressure we are under and reflect this in how you work’, ‘become more of a partner and less of an auditor’.
