Impact of COVID-19 on Scotland’s charities

OSCR conducted two surveys of charities across Scotland in May and November 2020. The survey examines the impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown measures on charities, as well as looking to the future and the support that charities need throughout the recovery phase.

Volunteer Scotland has deep mined this excellent data-source to explore the impact on charities’ volunteering, their response to the pandemic and the impact this has had on volunteer numbers.
