Thank You

Thank you for completing the Covid-19 Survey for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector Organisations

Thank you to all those organisations and groups who completed the survey coordinated by Cumbria Community Resilience Group (CCRG) to help establish the bigger picture across the county in relation to Covid19.

The results of the survey will help the CCRG to develop a strategy with partners and stakeholders to provide the right help and support to protect the sector and the valuable role it plays in many people’s lives.  The findings will initially be shared through the Community Resilience Group.

DBS Service and covid-19
