The Scottish third sector tracker - waves 1-6 summary report. (Summer 2021-Spring 2023)

This report presents key findings from the Scottish Third Sector Tracker, covering the period from August 2021 to April 2023. The Tracker is a longitudinal panel survey with Scottish Third Sector organisations. It was established in early 2021, as part of the response to the challenging situation that the Third Sector was facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The aim of the project was to generate regular, robust and timely insights about the sector through the COVID recovery period. Since 2021, the sector has faced significant new challenges, notably the emerging cost crisis since 2022. The data from the tracker continues to provide an essential source of timely information about how the sector is responding to a rapidly changing operating environment, and the support that it needs.
