Community capacity & resilience fund

Scottish Charity Awards 2017 winner – Leading Light – Celine Sinclair, The Yard

With investment from Scottish Government, the Community Capacity and Resilience Fund gives local community-based organisations, with an income of £250,000 or less, the opportunity to test out new, creative approaches, develop their workforce and add capacity all with the aim of having a preventative impact on communities, help combat welfare reform, poverty, social inequalities, promote social inclusion and support partnership working.

The fund can award grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to eligible third sector organisations to deliver projects/activities that support individuals and communities to mitigate the impact of welfare reform and poverty. This could be to deliver new services or approaches; to expand delivery of existing services to meet increased demand or to develop your workforce.
