CWVYS are conducting a survey of our members about the effects of Coronavirus on your work.

In response to requests at recent online Regional Group meetings, CWVYS is seeking your help in finding out how the current situation is affecting Members.

We are doing this for three reasons:

  • to understand how you are, how you are coping/not coping and the effects of working or not working during this crisis period
  • -to highlight areas and issues of need to which CWVYS can tailor its support accordingly
  • -to share these findings as ‘open data’ for Members and to inform strategic partners e.g. the Interim Youth Work Board; Welsh Government etc about the impact of recent events on the voluntary youth work sector

You will all receive a copy of the final report when it has been completed.

This will be important going forward to ensure we are protected as much as possible as a sector and that your work and its contribution to society is appreciated and valued.

We would be grateful if you could complete the survey by the end of the week: *CWVYS Survey on Coronavirus impact on Voluntary Youth Sector*

If you have any questions please send to


CWVYS Regional Social ZOOM Meetings will be held every fortnight for voluntary youth work organisations.  During this unprecedented COVID-19 period, we believe it is important to reach out, connect and support our members.

The next meetings are:

Central South and South East Wales – 28/5/20 – 10am to 11am

North Wales – 29/5/20 10am to 11am

South West and Mid Wales -29/5/20 1pm to 2pm

We are providing a supportive space for the sector to: –

  • keep in touch with each other
  • support and share knowledge and information
  • communicate to others the concerns and issues from the sector
  • and a bit of fun

Contact Catrin James to receive the joining details to join the meeting in your region.
