This report explores how community organisations have reacted and adapted to the challenges of the crisis.

When crisis struck, across the country community organisations were early responders, coordinating volunteers, delivering emergency supplies, supporting isolated groups, and finding creative ways to keep communities together.

Over 100 organisations contributed to the report, with input from community organisation chief executives and council leaders from across England.  This includes seven in-depth case-studies with groups in Berwick, Bristol, Coventry, Grimsby, Hackney, Manchester and Thetford.
