Small Grants Programme

Our Small Grants Programme accepts applications between £1,000 and £10,000 from charities registered in Scotland. We particularly wish to help with developing and improving communities.

Developing and improving local communities

Within any community, there will be a diverse collection of individuals and charities tackling local issues. Some issues will be unique to the local area, others will be replicated across the country or parts of it. We feel it is important to help individuals and groups work together to ensure a better quality of life within their community. Practical ways of making this happen may include:

  • Initiatives designed to encourage the involvement in the community of those too often excluded 
  • Working with people on low incomes, at risk from poverty or with problems finding accommodation 
  • Improving the standard of local facilities
