Summary: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the inequalities affecting children and families in Glasgow’s high poverty neighbourhoods, and how these have been heightened by the crisis. Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) conducted new research on the perspectives of service providers in the third sector and public sector, including frontline professionals working in local neighbourhoods and managers working at a strategic level across the city. The findings provide insights into the impacts of COVID-19 on children and families and how services have collaborated across sectors to respond to the urgent needs of communities and families during the pandemic.
