Financial Impact of Covid-19 on Camden VCS

Voluntary and Community groups across Camden have risen to the challenge of supporting residents and communities during the crisis, particularly those who are most vulnerable through health or isolation. Yet many groups have no or very limited funding or other income to carry out these activities and there is a risk to ongoing sustainability beyond Covid-19.In May 2020,VAC surveyed the sector to build a detailed picture of the current situation on the ground and to identify future risks to ongoing sustainability and service delivery in Camden. A key outcome of the survey is to identify future support needs for the sector and how VAC can best take forward and advocate for continuing support for the sector in both the short and mid-long term.The findings of this survey were discussed at the Camden Voluntary Action Forum meeting on 3 June 2020. Comments from participants have been incorporated into this report.
