The Community Capacity & Resilience Fund

Welfare Cuts taking it on

Introducing the Scottish Government’s pilot funding scheme as part of the larger Community Capacity & Resilience Fund.

The pilot funding scheme aims to support innovative and creative projects that increase the capacity of small third sector organisations to mitigate the impact of welfare reform, promote social inclusion, combat inequality, and increase partnership working.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to community based organisations with an annual income of £200,000 or less.  The pilot funding scheme is specifically geared towards resource-strapped frontline organisations.
