Finding a way forward

Briefing 8 on the challenges faced by VCSE leaders during the Covid-19 crisis

This eighth briefing shares the experiences of 41 leaders participating in the sessions between 17th June and 5th July 2020, and our reflections on the questions and opportunities for funders that they raise.

Three concerns stood out as front of mind for VCSE leaders:

  1. The wellbeing of their staff and themselves
  2. The range of issues that need to be taken into consideration when planning how to safely reinstate face-to-face services and working practices
  3. Ensuring that the sector’s role and contribution is visible

What next?
