Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) has announced that it has received further investment from the Scottish Government to support a third round of the Community Capacity and Resilience Fund.
Third sector organisations with an income of less than £250,000 can apply now for grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to support their delivery of projects and activities that help mitigate the effects of welfare reform, combat social inequality, promote social inclusion and have a preventative impact in communities.
For this round only, grants of up to £10,000 are being provided to pilot/test a new service/ new project which focuses on tackling the impact of welfare reform, poverty and social inequalities and develops people’s ability to prevent themselves from reaching crisis point. This could be, for example, piloting a new service(s) that is not happening at present within the organisation. The delivery period is 12 months.
Project activity should start from 1 December 2017 at the earliest.
The deadline for applications is 26 October 2017 (5pm).
