Community groups and charities based in Scotland can apply to the Weir Charitable Trust for funding to support specific activities and services in sport, recreational facilities, animal welfare, health and cultural projects to improve the quality of life for people, either through a particular field of expertise or a local community.
There’s no minimum or maximum that can be applied for or awarded and applicants need to state the amount they need for their project. All awards are for one year or less.
The next closing date for applications to the Weir Charitable Trust is the 28th August 2015.
Projects supported in the past include Borders Talking Newspaper (BTN), a charity which makes free weekly audio recordings of local newspapers from the Scottish Borders and circulates them on memory stick to around 150 people; and Dads Rock which is the only preschool playgroup in Edinburgh specifically for dads and male carers.
