State of the Sector 2020 - Summary Reports

Report on the state of the VCSE Sector in Warwickshire and Solihull.

This week is national Small Charities Week, where we celebrate and raise the profile of the charity sector. As part of this important week CAVA is proud to announce the launch of the preliminary results of their third State of the Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise Sector Report.

CAVA undertakes a biennial ‘State of the Sector’ survey as it is vital to find out how the sector is coping, to understand the challenges faced, to work to provide the right support and to ensure our collective voice is heard at both a local and national level. This year’s survey had a more specific COVID-19 focus.

The Voluntary and Community Sector is playing a critical role in the COVID-19 response. We know that there are thousands of active groups and volunteers in Warwickshire and Solihull, and that the Sector is also having to work in different ways, be flexible and is, in some cases, under real financial pressure.

The summary reports for Warwickshire and Solihull can be found attached below.

On the importance of the State of the Sector report, Kate Morrison, Chief Executive of CAVA said:

We are very appreciative of the time organisations took to complete the survey; the report really shows the diversity and incredible amount of hard work, energy and passion there is within our sector.

The Voluntary and Community Sector has been the backbone to local communities throughout the awful Coronavirus pandemic. This report more than any other helps us to predict the areas of increasing need and demand and pressures that our sector will face over the coming weeks, months and years; with effective support from all quarters, our sector will cope and thrive in these challenging and uncertain times.”
