Survey sets out to find out how Norfolk is really doing this winter

The Norfolk Community Foundation is asking people in the county to share their experiences of living through Covid-19 by taking part in a short online survey.   The purpose of the survey is to help the Foundation understand how neighbourhoods throughout Norfolk are managing and what help and support they need to get them through the winter and beyond. 

When the global pandemic hit, the Norfolk Community Foundation stepped up immediately.  Since the emergency Covid-19 community response was launched in March, with help from the public, local businesses and grants, the Foundation has invested close to £2million of urgent aid.  This funding enabled Norfolk charities to deliver essential support to the people who needed them: helping them deal with everything from exhausting, everyday challenges to life shattering issues and crisis situations.

“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,” says Claire Cullens, chief executive of Norfolk Community Foundation. “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?”

“The survey will help by providing us with a snapshot of life in communities throughout the county,” continues Claire. “What were the bad – and the good – things about the first lockdown?  Did people turn to charities for support when they’d never needed to before?  Have people felt compelled to support charities and voluntary groups?

“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.”
