The Todhill Wind Farm Fund benefits those living in the community council area of Larbert, Stenhousemuir & Torwood within Falkirk.
It is provided by the owner of the Todhill wind farm, Falkirk Todhill Wind Limited and is managed by Foundation Scotland. This is the first round of the Fund. An annual amount of £24,000, rising in line with inflation, will be paid into the Fund for the operating life of the wind farm.
A Community Panel, made up of people who live, work or volunteer in the parish decide how grants are awarded from the Fund. Groups and organisations working to benefit people in the community council area of Larbert, Stenhousemuir & Torwood can apply to the Fund. Your group must have a constitution (a governing document or set of rules) and be set up on a not-for-profit basis. It does not need to be a registered charity to apply.
The Fund’s priorities are to support charitable activity that:
- Improves the physical appearance of the community (including the town centre) and makes better use of our public spaces
- Develops community services, events and facilities to better meet the diverse needs of local people
- Preserves and enhances the natural environment for the benefit of those who live in the area
- Builds the skills, capacity and sustainability of community organisations serving the area
Closing date for applications is Monday 7th March 2016.
