The Third Sector in Leeds and in Yorkshire Humberside is playing a critical role in the Covid-19 response. The sector is having to work in different ways, more flexibly and, in some cases, is under real financial pressure.
Infrastructure bodies across Leeds are now working together to find out how third sector organisations are adapting, in order to understand the pressures teams are under, and to work to provide the right support.
Together, Forum Central, Leeds Community Foundation, Social Enterprise Yorkshire & Humber, Third Sector Leeds and Voluntary Action Leeds, have launched an online survey for third sector organisations to have their say.
The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and the information provided will be used by infrastructure bodies, to advocate for the sector’s interests and, wherever possible, to adapt services to meet changing needs.

The team are also looking to do some phone interviews, to gain a detailed account of members’ circumstances. If you’d prefer a phone call a phone call to take the survey with a member of the team over the phone please email Richard Warrington: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A follow up to this survey will be available in the coming months as our collective continues to find out how the sector is responding to the new challenges that come about during the emergency and beyond.
