Bolton's Covid-19 VCSE sector challenges Dec 2020
Answers marked with a * are required.
This short survey aims to collect information from Bolton based voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations about their current position and any challenges so that we can better understand the pressures on our sector locally.
We know the last thing that anyone needs at this time is a survey, but if you're able to spend a few minutes to complete, it will be helpful.
If you need help, support or guidance around your group or organisations activities, please contact the team at Bolton CVS on 01204 546002 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
