COVID-19 Community Research: Understanding Unmet Need survey

We are supporting researchers from the Public Health Institute, LJMU, to carry out a survey to understand the impact of COVID-19 on voluntary, community, faith and enterprise sector organisations across our local region. This research will provide evidence about:

  • The needs of voluntary, community, faith and enterprise sector organisations and the support required to support infrastructure and sustainability in the short and longer-term; and,
  • Whether there are specific groups within communities who are vulnerable and for whom there are specific concerns, and where an appropriate response is required to ‘reach out’ to provide immediate support.

The survey will take up to 20 minutes to complete. For more information, and to access the survey, please go to:

We would like to capture views from as many organisations as possible across our local region. Please share this survey with colleagues, as appropriate.

The survey will be open until 31st July 2020.

For more information about the research, please contact Dr Hannah Timpson, Reader in Socioeconomic Engagement in Health, Public Health Institute, LJMU:

Thank you,

Sally Yeoman, VS6
