Advice and Support

Coronavirus Advice and Support

Many community heritage groups will be affected by the Covid-19 crisis. Our team remains in place and we would encourage you to get in touch if you are encountering difficulties or would appreciate some support.

We are listening to heritage organisations and community groups to understand how their work is affected and developing plans and approaches to help them to recover.

Contacting us

The team in Development and Partnership is currently working from home and we aim to provide our normal service, as far as possible. If you need to contact us please do this by e-mail communityempowerment@hes.scot and we will reply as soon as possible.

Key sources of support

For most organisations and community groups your main concerns will be around the health and wellbeing of your staff, volunteers and visitors, as well as how to respond and mitigate the impacts on your operations. Whilst a wide range of support has been put in place to help you, we appreciate that this can sometimes feel overwhelming. We would recommend that you use the SCVO Third Sector Information to stay up to date and register for their bulletin. The hub includes information on funding, human resources, governance and access to further information on a range of programmes of support.
