Research aims and method
This research aimed to assess the extent to which third sector organisations have been supporting at risk groups locally and how they have been doing so.
An online survey was produced by SG social researchers. It was distributed by local authorities to third sector organisations they work with locally and by SG officials to known third sector organisations. The survey was live from 21st July to 7th August 2020. The survey was completed by 530 organisations of which 54% self-identified as voluntary organisations, 18% as community organisations, 11% as social enterprises, 6% as intermediary organisations and 12% as other. Most responding organisations (71%) serve only communities within their local authority. Organisations from each of the 32 Scottish local authorities responded.
