COVID-19 Community Research: Understanding Unmet Need survey (closing 24th July 2020)

We are supporting researchers from the Public Health Institute, LJMU, to carry out a survey to understand the impact of COVID-19 on voluntary, community, faith and enterprise sector organisations across our local region. This research will provide evidence about:

  • The needs of voluntary, community, faith and enterprise sector organisations and the support required to support infrastructure and sustainability in the short and longer-term; and,
  • Whether there are specific groups within communities who are vulnerable and for whom there are specific concerns, and where an appropriate response is required to ‘reach out’ to provide immediate support.

Have you been affected by crime?

A message from Jane Kennedy, Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner

“Being a victim of crime can be an extremely upsetting and distressing experience and I understand how important it is that, in their moment of need, a victim gets the help and support they need to cope, and eventually recover.”

“Since 2015 I have been responsible for commissioning some of the support services that are on offer to victims of crime here on Merseyside. This includes support for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities – survivors of sexual offences, child sexual exploitation, domestic violence and hate crime. I am now at the early stage of planning the services that I will commission for 2018-2021 and I want to make sure I am providing the right support, at the right time, for the people who need it most.”

“That’s why I am urging anyone who has been affected by crime (or has decided to seek support for an historic offence) in the last three years to share their experience of the support they received with me to help ensure I commission the right services for victims in the future.”

“I don’t want to second guess the needs of victims and that’s why your views are so important. By listening to your feedback and experiences I can get put the right services in place to help those who are most in need.”

“It is only takes 10 minutes to share your views through a short, anonymous, online survey. By taking part, you will be playing a vital role in ensuring even better care and support for victims in the future.”

“Your help is really appreciated.”

The deadline for taking part is Saturday 16th September.
