The Adapt and Thrive programme is open to applications to help third sector organisations and groups adapt to and recover from lockdown.
Adapt and Thrive is part of the Scottish Government Recovery funding programme, and aims to support organisations across the third sector to adapt to the challenges presented by COVID-19 and “build back better” to thrive in the future.
Organisations can apply for grants of £5,000 – £25,000 (£75,000 for a partnership) to:
- review current operations and services
- determine which areas need to change, flex, innovate, or grow in order to be financially resilient during and post COVID-19
- pay for outside help or new staff roles to deliver those changes (including fundraising, marketing, sales or other income-generation related consultancy)
The fund is open only until the end of June 2021, and completing the application form takes approximately an hour.
The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), who manages the programme, strongly recommends that applicants use the relevant word template available on their website (linked for your convenience) to plan their draft before completing the online form, as there will be no option to save your application and return to complete later.
