Innovating in the third sector – online research and services in 2020

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm


This lunchtime seminar from Scotland’s Third Sector Research Forum and Policy Scotland will focus on learning from innovative online research and evaluation in 2020 to improve practices in 2021.

Four presenters and Third Sector Research Forum members will share their experiences which will help to ground two shorter discussion periods for academics and practitioners. The aim of this event is to share learning from the new context of working in 2020 from researchers embedded in third sector organisations and those in university settings. We invite those from academia, third sector and policy to join us for this event!


  • Dr Jane Cullingworth (University of Glasgow) will share her experience researching disabled people’s experiences in the pandemic using digital research methods
  • Amy Calder (YouthLink) will discuss the impact of digitally-based youth work on research and evaluation
  • Ruth McKenna (Waverly Care) will share learning from the research and evaluation of at-home HIV testing in the summer and current work in a peer research project
  • Chris Ross (Children in Scotland) will discuss his organisation’s adaptation of child- and youth-led research to a new service and research context.

All will reflect on how this new context has changed their practice and lessons learned for 2021.
