State of the Sector Survey
Exeter Connect is undertaking a survey to try build a more detailed picture of the current state of the community sector in Exeter. We are aware that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, a huge impact on how our community groups and organisations have been able to operate.
If you are a group or organisation in Exeter, we would really appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey. Your responses will help us ensure that we can offer and advocate for more appropriate support in the community sector.
We would love to hear from you, so do get in touch to find out more about how Exeter Connect could support your group or organisation.
