Coronavirus: Share experiences and worries with Norfolk Community Foundation

West Norfolk residents are being called on to share their experiences and worries during Coronavirus with Norfolk Community Foundation.

They have launched a survey to provide the foundation with a snapshot of community life and insight into what help and support may be needed through the winter and beyond.

Claire Cullens, chief executive of Norfolk Community Foundation, said: “We are privileged to have close working relationships with hundreds of charities and social enterprises working to make a tangible, positive difference to the lives of people in our county.

“But we need to know more about how people in Norfolk are coping during the ongoing pandemic.

“What are they most worried about and where is help needed?”

When the global pandemic hit, the Norfolk Community Foundation established the emergency Covid-19 Community Response Fund.

With help from residents, local businesses and grants, they have invested close to £2 million of urgent aid.

This funding has enabled Norfolk charities to deliver essential support to the people who needed them.

Claire said: “As an organisation which exists entirely to support communities in Norfolk, we need to know as much as possible about the worries people have: whether concerns about health, anxieties about money and paying bills, feeling lonely and sad, or fears for jobs, careers and the future.

“We hope that lots of people will spend just a couple of minutes to complete the survey and help to inform the work Norfolk Community Foundation delivers.”

You can take the short online survey now via: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NCFWinter20Survey or visit the Norfolk Community Foundation website.

Those who take the survey will also have the chance to win a £200 supermarket shopping voucher.
