We hope this Community Group Survey finds you and your family well in these surreal times. Westmeath Public Participation Network (WPPN) is hearing from many groups the difficulties that they are experiencing with a loss of income for the last 5 months (no fundraising, no events etc), yet all your group outgoings still need to be paid (rent, insurance, utilities etc).
WPPN in conjunction with Westmeath Community Development (WCD) has put together this survey for community groups, to try and find out what the loss of income to groups over the last number of months has been; along with potential costs and other difficulties involved in reopening (restricted numbers; signage; hand sanitizer etc). We hope to use the information from the survey to create an informed picture of the situation in the county for community groups; in order that we can better campaign for funds to assist groups. We hope that similar surveys will be done by PPNs in other counties, to build up a national picture. Although we cannot guarantee anything; hard evidence is what is required to show the situation country wide.
As a thank you for completing the survey Westmeath PPN is putting up two x €100 vouchers. All completed surveys will be entered into a draw .
Please find the survey on the link in blue below and we ask that you take the time to complete it.
