Respond, recover, reset: the voluntary sector and COVID-19
This ESRC-funded project, led by Professor Daniel King, examines COVID-19 impact on voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. In particular, it focuses on providing real-time data about how the pandemic is impacting voluntary organisations working practices and operations, their responses, learning and resilience. The project is conducted in conjunction with NCVO and Sheffield Hallam University.
This research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of the UK Research and Innovation’s response to COVID-19.
