Al Masaar is working with Together, We Help, to highlight the way local communities play a critical role in Scotland’s future and how everyone can build forward better, creating a fairer Scotland for all.
They have launched an anonymous online survey for volunteers and individuals who have contributed at any point, or are still contributing, towards local action, and are keen to hear from as many individuals as possible.
They are looking to hear from people who joined or worked alongside a voluntary group or organisation to deliver vital support to the community, or those who have taken time out to help others. This survey needs to be completed by the individual, not the organisation, who contributed (or is still contributing) towards the call for local action.
This work is funded by national organisations, including Corra and the Robertson Trust. It is part of the forthcoming Social Action Inquiry across Scotland which is to help charities, public bodies and government understand and support the ways communities come together to help each other, to help them engage with communities more and so they can ensure communities are given the importance they deserve.
All information provided will remain anonymous and will be written up in a report, which will be published in early 2021. This report is specifically about how people have helped each other during COVID-19, and will be part of the wider inquiry starting later next year.
The deadline for responses is Wednesday 25th November.
