New research project to understand how Covid-19 has affected social cohesion in the UK

The Connection Coalition is delighted to be working with the University of Kent and the Belong Network on a UK wide research project to understand how Covid-19 has affected social cohesion in the UK.

We invite and encourage members of staff from our member organisations to support this project and complete this survey.

The survey takes most people around 30 minutes. We are specifically asking you (members of staff from our member organisations) to take part, because the project is seeking to understand how working with the community is changing during Covid-19, and whether this work shapes peoples' feelings about other people and their community. 

The findings will provide a rich historical record of what is happening to societal cohesion as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold, and will provide our organisations with an evidence base to help build more connected communities in the future. Please do share the link with your colleagues at your organisations. 

The University of Kent is giving the first 2000 people who complete the survey a £5 Amazon gift voucher, and free entry to a prize draw where you could also win one of five £100 Amazon gift vouchers. Make sure you fill it out soon to get the voucher. Those who take part beyond the first 2000 will still enter the prize draw and get a chance to take part in the survey in August. 

They’ll also send you an update report on the project in August 2020 and November 2020 if you’re interested.

This is a University of Kent survey, and they will be analysing the results. If you have any questions about the project or how your data is protected then do get in touch with: F.Lalot@kent.ac.uk

The project has been funded by the Nuffield Foundation, but the views expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily the Foundation. Visit www.nuffieldfoundation.org to find out more.
