At The Ferret we strive to make our source material available to our readers.
We have published more than 5000 source documents in a public searchable archive that you can find on DocumentCloud.
Additional data that we’ve made available for free can be found on Github.
Where we have invested in a particular dataset we may limit access to our members who support the project.
On rare occasions we may be required to limit access because of licensing restrictions. For example, as part of our investigation into property owned offshore we published a special members-only searchable database covering every scottish property owned outwith the UK. Find it here: https://theferret.scot/off-shore-property-search/
You can search our other member-only downloads below.
Disclaimer: While we do our best to provide accurate information, we cannot guarantee it. Therefore you should be careful if you choose to rely on it for something important. If you decide to re-use this data or share it more widely please credit The Ferret as the source and link to this page. Don’t hesitate to contact-us if you have have any questions about the data here.

This spreadsheet itemises £58m of Scottish local authority spending from the Common Good accounts they manage. The data was sourced by FOI and not all local authorities supplied detailed data. This data generated a number of stories, including this one, which includes a simple searchable form for the same data.
