Resource: Covid-19 weekly intelligence gathering

Each week Inspiring Scotland staff produce a Covid-19 intelligence report providing an overview of the key issues being reported by the 300 charities Inspiring Scotland supports across its funds.

These initially were developed as an internal resource to help highlight issues as they emerge, help to predict what is needed in the months ahead, and how we collectively can best respond. However we believe the information is useful to a wider audience working to support people in communities across Scotland and the Scottish third sector during the Covid-19 response. The reports should be viewed in a series with each week’s report building on the previous with new issues to highlight.
