Small community groups and voluntary organisations in Scotland can apply for grants of up to £300 (or exceptionally up to £500 for a larger event) through the Fairer Scotland Engagement Fund.
The aim of the Fund is to help groups run an event or engagement activity with a group of five or more people to gather their thoughts on creating a Fairer Scotland. By 2030, Fairer Scotland aims to create a place where people are healthier, happier and treated with respect, and where opportunities, wealth and power are spread more equally. Discussions and engagement should include:
What are the issues that matter most to people?, what do people think needs to be done?, how can people and their community play a role in helping to shape our future?
Discussions and engagement ideally should take place before 16 October 2015. A brief report and evidence of what emerged from the event / engagement must be returned to the Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) no later than Friday 23 October 2015. The closing date for applications is the 12th October 2015.
