The Scottish Third Sector Tracker is a growing research community made up of representatives from third sector organisations based across the whole of Scotland, who are willing to share their experiences, views and concerns as the sector faces both new and ongoing challenges.
The Tracker is run by an independent research company called DJS Research on behalf of SCVO (Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations), the Scottish Government, the William Grant Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund.
The team is looking for representatives from all third sector organisations (charities, community groups, social enterprises, credit unions etc.) to join their peers and tell us about the challenges their organisations are facing and the support they need.
Every four months, members of the Tracker will submit a small amount of detail about their organisation’s current situation via an online survey. Details are be anonymised and then aggregated alongside the responses from all of the other Scottish Third Sector Tracker members. This will give a clear and up-to-date picture of the health of the third sector in Scotland and will enable them to identify where they can provide support to the sector most effectively.
