The Scottish third sector tracker - wave 7 report (Winter 2023)

This paper presents the key findings from the seventh wave of the Scottish Third Sector Tracker, data for which was collected in November 2023. The Tracker collects panel data from Scottish third sector organisations to give current insights into the state of the sector, key trends, and developments. The Tracker asks organisations questions relating to their current organisational challenges; demand for their services; paid staff and volunteers; and financial health. Topical questions are included each wave. For wave 7, we asked organisations to tell us how concerned they are about energy costs; challenges in meeting demand for their services; concerns for the individuals and communities they work with; conditions attached to their funding; outlook for the future and about support required to reduce carbon emissions and transition towards net zero.
