Applications are now open for the Third Sector Resilience Fund (TSRF).
Part of a £350 million support package by Scottish Government for the sector in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the TSRF will support organisations across the third sector who are at risk of closure due to a sharp decrease in income, or who are unable to deliver their services directly as a result of the pandemic. The fund’s primary intention is to help these organisations to stabilise and manage cashflows over this period.
The TSRF is delivered by Firstport, Social Investment Scotland and the Corra Foundation, and offers charities, social enterprises, and community or voluntary groups grants of £5,000 – £100,000. In addition, there will be up to a further £5 million available in fully flexible, 0% interest loans starting at £50,000.
