Community Capacity & Resilience Fund

September 27, 2017

SCVO logoThe Community Capacity and Resilience fund, managed by SCVO, supports projects and activities that support local community based organisations across Scotland to help people mitigate the effects of welfare reform by providing them with the support and skills they need.

This fund gives local community based organisations 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 social inequalities, promote social inclusion and support partnership working. The fund is looking to award grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 to eligible third sector organisations to deliver projects/activities for up to a 9 month period that support individuals and communities to mitigate the impact of welfare reform and poverty. This could be to deliver new services; to expand delivery of existing services or to develop your workforce.

In recognition of the fact that some pilot/test projects need a longer time period to determine impact, proposals can also be made to pilot/test projects for 12 months with grant awards up to £10,000.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Thursday 26th October 2017
