A summary of the MPF COVID-19 survey

The Midlands Parks Forum liaised with the UK Government to provide information on the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on access to parks, social distancing in green spaces, and staff/volunteer resources. All information from the survey is fed back to The Prime Minister’s Office, MHCLG and DEFRA through a weekly briefing.  

We are sending out regular surveys to our Midlands wide membership to continue providing a picture of the issues facing our members. If you are not a member, or are an organisation outside of the Midlands, we would be really grateful if you could also complete our surveys to help provide a clearer picture of the impact to parks and green spaces.

[Original survey published 4 April 2020]
