Please Complete the Survey about Voluntary Sector Support in Derbyshire

Derby and Derbyshire Integrated Care Board and Derbyshire County Council have created a survey to understand the needs of the VCSE across Derbyshire and in particular the support on offer from organisations like Derbyshire Dales CVS.

After the initial questions to find out more about your group or organisation, you will be asked about the support provided by the current Derbyshire Infrastructure Organisations, the support that you access from them and the support services that you need from them.  The final questions will ask about your support needs, so that we have a clearer understanding of what the voluntary sector needs in order to grow and thrive.
