New research project aims to chart views and concerns of Scottish voluntary sector

 

SCVO has partnered with a range of stakeholders for the study, which will monitor the experiences of 800 representatives from the sector

A major new research project which aims to chart the experiences, views, and concerns of Scotland’s voluntary sector has been launched.

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has partnered with a range of stakeholders to build a Scotland-focused voluntary sector research community called the Scottish Third Sector Tracker.

SCVO is looking for 800 representatives from voluntary sector organisations from across the country who are willing to share their experiences, views, and concerns, as the sector emerges from the pandemic.

The information gathered will inform and direct the way SCVO, and many other representatives, including the Scottish Government, provide support to organisations in the coming years.

Regular reports and insights from the tracker will be shared to help policy makers and funders shape their own policies and support for the sector.

The study will be managed by DJS Research, who will be in contact with organisations to take part in the survey over the coming weeks.

Partners include funders The Scottish Government; The William Grant Foundation and The National Lottery Community Fund; and organisations taking an advisory role such as OSCR; Social Enterprise Scotland; Evaluation Support Scotland; and the University of Glasgow.

The research will be conducted over the next 18 months, with participants carrying out quarterly surveys.

I am wondering how the research will obtain views of equality groups; organisations and/ or individuals from the all of the equality characteristics. as none seem to be represented at strategic level from the article.
