Insights on the Cost of Living - Inspiring Scotland


Insights on the Cost of Living

Throughout autumn of 2022  Inspiring Scotland teams worked with portfolio partners to gather and share insights on what the pressure that the increased cost of living is having on people and the funded charities we support.

Our fund teams gathered and shared information from portfolio partners about:

  • How concerned they are about cost of living crisis for people they support, their organisations, their staff and volunteers
  • What challenges people are facing due to the cost of living crisis
  • What concerns partners have for the sustainability of their organisations
  • What they are doing to mitigate the impact how Inspiring Scotland can provide support

Insights were gathered through regular virtual portfolio catch-ups enabling charity partners to share and support each other. Surveys were also distributed to complete anonymously. This has been added to insights gathered by Inspiring Scotland staff to produce this summary report.

Thank you  to portfolio partners for sharing with us, and each other, how they are responding to the challenges faced by the cost of living crisis.

Thank you to the Scottish Government and investors for funding the vital work of portfolio partners.
