Mid Sussex Voluntary & Community Sector supporting people during COVID-19 - report 2

Conversations with Voluntary and Community Sector organisations in the Mid Sussex District to hear their experience of working through the lockdown - report 2

Mid Sussex Voluntary Action (MSVA), and Healthwatch West Sussex (HWWS) are working collaboratively to capture the Covid-19 experiences from VCS organisations, their challenges, solutions, and future planning.

Our first report detailed the responses from our Online Resilience Survey, completed by 31 VCS organisations – click here to read the findings.

This report draws from the ten semi-structured conversations - telephone and virtual- with VCS staff - CEO’s, Chair, Trustees, managers, and committee members - all members of MSVA. Our aim was to capture their experiences of working through this unprecedented time. These conversations took place during mid-May to mid-July and are a snapshot of a period of rapid change whilst lockdown measures were still in place.

These conversations have been developed into individual Case Studies which accompany this report and are available on our website.

We would like to ‘thank’ all of the interviewees for their honesty and time, as this report would not be possible without them.
