Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund
Coronavirus has had a significant impact on how neighbours and communities connect and relate to each other; the purpose of this Fund is to provide small grants to community and voluntary groups across Scotland who are connecting and supporting people within their local community. It aims to specifically reach groups who have strong local relationships and help increase the wellbeing and social connections for communities.
The Fund is only available to groups that are rooted in their community, require a small amount of money, and have received little/or no emergency funding during the pandemic. Eligible groups can apply for grants usually between £1,000 – £2,000 (maximum of up to £5,000) and funds will be unrestricted to help groups cover running costs or deliver support or activities in their local area over the next 12 months.
This is a Scottish Government fund worth £500,000 and is administered by Corra Foundation.
