RESEARCHER NEEDED FOR STATE OF THE SECTOR RESEARCH IN WANDSWORTH
WCA (Wandsworth Care Alliance) runs the Wandsworth Voluntary Sector Coordination Service which fulfils the CVS functions in the borough and now wants to undertake state of the sector research, something the sector has requested and is clearly needed as it is some time since it was previously done. As we emerge from the pandemic, we felt this was an opportune time to do this so that we can gain an understanding of the sector as it moves towards working within a post-Covid environment.
We are therefore interested in hearing from potential researchers about their views on the most appropriate methodology, our thoughts are that this would likely involve a mix of survey, individual interviews and focus groups. We would also expect the researcher to attend up to three network or forum meetings to explain the project, seek input on questions or approaches and share preliminary findings.
We would like to start the research at the end of the summer ready to launch the report at an event in early 2022.
Expressions of interest
Expressions of interest should be sent to Julie Bristow at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 22 July. Any questions should also be addressed to Julie. We anticipate interviews will be held on Wednesday 28 July 2021.
