Take part in this week's survey about the impact of Covid-19 on charities

09 Jun 2020 Announcement

Pro Bono Economics (PBE) is running a short weekly survey to understand how Covid-19 is affecting charities as the crisis develops. 

The aim of the survey is to understand the pressures being faced by the charity sector as a result of the coronavirus crisis, and monitor how this changes week-to-week. 

Last week’s survey found that 72% of respondents predict growing demand over the next six months, compared to pre-crisis expectations.

The survey will be open for 48 hours each week, is anonymous, and should take no longer than 60 seconds to complete.

Last month PBE published a paper arguing that the sector has been undervalued by policy makers. It estimates the sector contributes £200bn to the economy, 12 times more than officially estimated, a discrepancy which leaves the sector “vulnerable to policy neglect”. 

This week’s survey is now open and will close at midnight tomorrow. Take part here.

Civil Society Media is a media partner for the project.
