Thanks for visiting the coronavirus information hub.
In March 2022 we took the decision to wind down the hub as a standalone resource.
We are still providing guidance and support to help organisations respond to the pandemic, but this is now part of our main website:
The info hub was launched in March 2020, as a ‘single source of truth’ for the voluntary sector.
Although the hub was hosted on SCVO’s website, it was informed and made successful through a collective effort. Funders, Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs), national intermediary organisations and others came together to highlight problems, interpret guidance and award emergency funding.
We worked hard to strike a difficult balance with the hub, making sure it was comprehensive enough to help the majority of voluntary organisations. But not going into so much detail that it felt unmanageable.
Some of the statistics on use of the hub also show how valuable it was, particularly in the first year of the pandemic:

We worked with Media Co-op, Penumbra, Home Start, Food Train, Cornerstone, Scouts Scotland and Maryhill Integration Network and many other organisations to create a film for the campaign – take a look:
