Following the BVSC 2021 State of the Sector Survey, BVSC Research facilitated five deep dive events to work with the sector to progress the key themes that were highlighted within the survey.

Recent research carried out by BVSC and our academic partners highlighted concerns about the level of burnout and fatigue and ‘perma-crisis’ being experienced across the workforce against a backdrop of a cost-of-living crisis, rising demand and increased complexity in service-user need, long-standing and ongoing pressures on public spending and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This report summarises the discussions from our ‘Staff Health and Wellbeing: Implications for the workforce, service delivery, recruitment and retention’ event that was attended by a range of organisations from the VCFSE sector in Birmingham.
