We know that in Birmingham and indeed across the UK, the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sectors have been key partners in leading the local, regional and national response to the pandemic, responding to the existing and emerging needs of our most vulnerable citizens.The Covid-19 pandemic has seen exceptional upheaval and loss across the world; changing the way that people live, work and socialise.

We know that in Birmingham and indeed across the UK, the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sectors have been key partners in leading the local, regional and national response to the pandemic, responding to the existing and
emerging needs of our most vulnerable citizens.

However, it is also important that we understand what the short and long-term implications are for the sector’s future in a post-Covid recovery landscape.

Our State of the Sector Survey, launched in July 2020 has provided us with hugely valuable data that supports us in understanding what is happening across the sector.

This report provides a summary of the 133 responses we received.
