Beyond Covid: What next for VCSE organisations? (On-line event: 18th March 12-2pm)

During 2020, Erewash Voluntary Action surveyed voluntary organisations, community groups and social enterprises (VCSE) across Derby & Derbyshire, to capture their experience of the pandemic, its impact on their work and resources, and the support they were likely to need.

The findings of that survey have been published in a report which can be seen here, however EVA has since said that a lot has happened since then, with society having experiencing a second wave of the virus, another lockdown and the introduction of mass testing and vaccination - bringing hope of a return to some kind of normal in the months to come. 

To take stock and consider the ‘what next’, the sector is being invited to participate in an online event on Thursday 18th March 2021 from 12noon to 2pm.

Hosted by 3D and in partnership Derbyshire County Council, this two hour online event is an opportunity for both city and countywide VCSE organisations to reflect, update and consider what challenges and opportunities the future holds.

Interested participants are encouraged to join in and reflect on experiences over the last extraordinary year, both positive and negative and challenges anticipated in looking to the future. The on-line event will also seek to establish how we build on that, and what is needed to survive and thrive.

This event will be an opportunity for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprises anywhere in Derby or Derbyshire to have their say, and those from other sectors involved in the community response to Covid.
