Community360 is committed to a continued programme of insight and intelligence gathering about our local sector.  We achieve this by support and conducting research.

We are pleased to publish the reports below and work with a range of partners to produce them.

C360 Covid report press release 


North East Essex Communities Responding to Crisis

In August 2020, C360 commissioned the University of Essex to collect the testimonies of community organisers. Interviewees generously gave their time between October 2020 and February 2021 when contributors, their families as well as their staff,

volunteers and service users were under great pressure. This report is a milestone not an end-point.
