Together We Help is a new piece of community-led research that shines a light on how people came together and took action during the coronavirus crisis. This new report reflects the experiences of 367 people across Scotland and offers valuable insights into what enables collective action at neighbourhood and community level.

The research was commissioned as part of the Social Action Inquiry in Scotland. It has been supported by Carnegie UK Trust, Corra Foundation, Foundation Scotland, the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), The National Lottery Community Fund and, The Robertson Trust. We would like to thank the researchers – Talat Yaqoob, Iffat Shahnaz, Ellie Hutchinson and Jessica Armstrong – the Scottish Community Development Centre and Community Enterprise.
