Research: Communities responding to COVID-19


Local Trust has commissioned in-depth research to look how communities across England respond to COVID-19 and how they recover.

The research, undertaken by a coalition of researchers led by The Third Sector Research Centre at the University of Birmingham, looks at how different communities fare during and after the coronavirus crisis. The findings will provide insight into the impact of unexpected demands or crisis on local communities, and the factors that shape their resilience, response and recovery.
