Coronavirus (COVID-19) community resilience in Scotland's islands: research

The challenges presented by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic have prompted extraordinary responses from many communities across Scotland, including the islands. It is this response – and the networks that supported it and stemmed from it – that this research seeks to explore and learn from.


The Scottish Government would like to say a huge thank you to all the people in the case study areas who voluntarily gave up their own time to talk to us about their experiences during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We would also like to thank all those who took time to guide this project on the research advisory group.

Finally, special thanks to Ipsos Scotland and Pollyanna Chapman of Impact Hub Inverness for carrying out this important research.
