Administered by Foundation Scotland, the ScotRail Community Grants Fund provides grants for constituted community groups and charities with an income of less than £100,000 per year that are working in Scotland.
Grants of between £500 and £2,000 can cover at least 25% of the total project cost which must be less under £8,000.
The funding can help with the cost of projects which will make a positive difference in their neighbourhoods.
The projects should address at least one of the following priorities:
- Promoting positive mental health and wellbeing.
- Improving literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing in primary schools.
- Improving the community’s environmental impact at a local level.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate and provide evidence of need for their project.
Applications are currently being accepted for projects that start on or after 1 December 2017.
The next deadline for applications is 25 September 2017.
