Hello! We've recently rebranded to nfpResearch. Please visit our new website at nfpresearch.com


Over the past 15 years, we have seen how different the Scotland charity sector is compared to the rest of the UK. The Scottish public are more trusting of charities as a whole, though this trust has declined since 2013.

MSPs have stronger relationships with charities than their Westminster counterparts, though Holyrood is becoming increasingly crowded as more UK-wide charities seek to use Holyrood as a starting point for legislation change across the four nations.

If you’re a charity working in Scotland, our research can help you to understand your position against key competitors and how broader trends affect your work.

Last year, we released our ‘Going Viral’ report, exploring the initial response to the Covid-19 outbreak by charities. This is the second year of Covid-19, and it was time to revisit and delve into the experiences of charities in the sector again to take a longer-term perspective on the pandemic and its impact on the sector.
