What this guidance covers

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is forcing many charities to change how they usually operate. This guidance brings together information charities need to know during this time and highlights other organisations who may be able to offer support.

We are working closely with key partners and stakeholders across the sector to make sure we can get clear information out to support charities at this time. 

See the Coronavirus Third Sector Information Hub from SCVO and the COVID-19 information from Scottish Government for the latest updates.
