Today we have launched our Covid-19 Transition Fund for organisations. With support from the Scottish Government we have £39,500 we are going to distribute to community organisations across Scotland.
The transition fund is here to help organisations respond to the changing needs of their members in a sustainable way. This can mean help in accessing food and sustenance, help in getting online and setting up online networks or creating local networks to engage with key services.
Grants are available of £500–£1500.
To be eligible you must:
- Be a registered charity, independent organisation, or unincorporated association (we cannot accept applications from individuals)
- Be from a diverse ethnic and cultural minority community in Scotland or deliver catered programs in conjunction with these individuals and communities
- Provide a service or programme of work that will tackle online social isolation or support people to adapt to social distancing requirements and empower their access to key services, information, or support.
