Wee Grants for Wee Groups
Wee Grants support smaller charities and community groups who are doing good work in their communities, which fits one of its following funding strands:
- Care and Wellbeing - Improving the quality of life for those affected by physical and/or mental health issues and their carers.
- Strengthening Communities - Increasing the ability and capacity of people and communities to create solutions which address local need.
- Realising Potential – Developing confidence and resilience in young people, particularly those who face barriers to success.
Wee Grants range from £500 to £2,000 and can fully or partly fund work. This can include day-to-day running costs such as rent or utilities, project costs, sessional staff and items such as equipment or training materials. Eligible applicants must be a constituted community group or small registered charity with an annual income of £100,000 or less. It is hoped to run the pilot for around six months and applications can be made at any time during this period.
