Are you part of a community group in 2020?

During the challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak, people are finding new ways to support one another and build community connections.

I am a researcher at the University of York. I want to help tell the story of community organising during the COVID-19 crisis. I believe we may be able to learn from what is happening now to build knowledge and skills for strong communities in the future.

Whether you are a brand new group responding to the crisis, an established organisation finding new ways to operate during social distancing, or a group whose activities have been affected by the pandemic, your experience is valuable. Communities 2020 research project is looking for groups like yours to take part in research.

There are several ways to participate in this research, and it won’t take up much of your time.

If you are involved with a community group or project, as an organiser, member, or simply taking part in activities/receiving help,  please get in touch. I would love to hear from you. For more information, take a look at the FAQs.
