The Improvement Service has developed a dashboard entitled, Understanding the Scottish local impact of Covid-19. This tool summarises the publically available data relating to the current economic impact of Covid-19. It shows, at a Scottish local authority level, the current uptake of government support including;
- The Coronovarius Job Retention Scheme – Employments Furloughed
- The Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS)
- Unemployment benefit claims
- The COVID Business Support Grant Fund
This will be of interest to local authorities and other partners in understanding the economic impact in their local area and how this compares to other areas. Data will be updated as it becomes available.
