Version published on: 30/03/2020

This document signposts to key sources of support and advice relevant to towns, city-districts and communities in order to help the custodians of Scotland’s places respond to the impact of coronavirus.

This briefing will be updated as new announcements are made, and you can email any resources which have been missed to ewan@scotlandstowns.org. Updates will be posted on the Scotland’s Towns Partnership and Scotland’s Improvement Districts websites. We continue to support our towns and city districts through this time, and so please get in touch with any queries that we may be able to help with.
