ASSC Survey into Self-Caterer Access to Covid-19 Business Support & Sectoral Recover

The Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) is the leading source of knowledge on short-term letting and holiday homes in Scotland. The ASSC have previously conducted three Scotland-wide sectoral surveys relating to issues concerning eligibility and access to the various packages of economic support from the Scottish and UK Governments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This fourth survey updates on the progress in the distribution of grant funding, which is vital in the immediate term, but the new survey also looks towards the future in terms of exiting lockdown and the recovery phase for our sector.

The results offer valuable insights from Scottish self-catering operators in a sector that has been estimated to contribute over £723m each year to the Scottish economy.

Survey Overview

  • The ASSC ran a fourth round of their online survey consisting of 14 questions. This was publicised via ASSC newsletters, as well as on the ASSC’s social media pages on Twitter and Facebook and via industry contacts.
  • In 24 hours, the survey generated 687 responses from businesses in 29 out of 32 local authorities. 329 were from members of the ASSC and 358 responses were from non-members. The survey closed at 7pm on 14th May.
