Impact of COVID19 on Voluntarty Services – VHS Report

Impact of COVID19 on Voluntarty Services – VHS Report

This briefing sets out the top-line results of research VHS conducted in late March
2020. The results demonstrate the impact the COVID-19 crisis is already having on the health and
wellbeing of people supported by organisations and on organisations’ own ability to
continue supporting people. It highlights the speed, creativity and flexibility that our
sector is demonstrating as it responds to the crisis. It also shows the real need for
additional resources – and fast.
The intention is that this briefing will be useful to policy makers in the Scottish
Government, Public Health Scotland and to other agencies responsible for shaping
policy and interventions during the continued COVID-19 outbreak. We hope this will
foster stronger collaboration and partnership working between policy and decision
makers and our sector. In the interest of disseminating the data quickly we have not
set out any conclusions or recommendations, but plan to do so in some subsequent
thematic briefings.
