A budget of around £0.5 million was set aside to provide funding to third sector organisations to allow them to gear up for supporting the implementation of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 (“the Act”) in 2018/19 through help with funding for transformation costs.

There were two rounds of funding and we were able to support a total of 47 applications from organisations across Scotland to develop their capacity through improvements to their systems and/or technology. See what we have funded 

A total of £448.000 has gone directly to the sector in CATS grant payments and these organisations are working towards putting the CATS investment to excellent use throughout their organisations to ensure that they have the capacity to implement the Act.

The CATS Fund is now closed
