Using data from a review of existing reports and studies, from a survey conducted by the Institut de recherche et d’information socioéconomiques (IRIS) in the autumn of 2020 and from focus groups with community organizations in the winter of 2021, the Observatoire de l’ACA published 13 reports from June 2021 to May 2022, on the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on autonomous community action (ACA).

A first report summarizes the experiences of community organizations during the different phases of the crisis and introduces the themes addressed in the other reports: A long crisis experienced in different phases (coming in may)

A series of three reports present the impacts of the crisis on populations from the point of view of community organizations:

 

Increase in isolation and distress

 

Loss of access to information and resources

 

Increase in financial precarity

 

Five reports deal with the impact of the crisis on the actions and internal life of community organizations:

 

Impacts on the Accessibility of Community Organizations:
Staying in Touch with Populations during a Crisis

 

Actions from Community Organizations in Times of Crisis:
Essential, Yet Unrecognized

 

Heath Risk Management Within Community Organizations

 

Impacts on Associative and Democratic Life in Community Organizations

 

Impacts on volunteering (coming in may)

 

A series of two reports focus on the impact of the crisis on ACA funding:

 

The Financial Precarity of Community Organizations Exacerbated

 

Financial Support for Community Organizations in Times of Crisis
An Inadequate Response

 

A series of two reports explore the impact of the crisis on the external relations of community organizations:

 

Between Solidarity and Threat to Autonomy

 

A Wide Range of Experiences within Crisis Units
