A new £1M covid recovery fund, the Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund, has been launched aimed at Armed Forced Charities in Scotland . It is coordinated by the Corra Foundation. The closing date for applications is 16 July with funding released to successful applicants by the end of August.
See attached links for more detailed information on how to apply: https://funding.scot/funds/Armed Forces fund . https://www.gov.scot/news/gbp-1-million-for-armed-forces-charities-1/
The fund is not aimed at supporting new activities but essentially to protect existing pre covid work/services that may be at risk from the effects of COVID, for example reduction in the ability to fundraise or generate income through grants etc or need to make adaptations to how you deliver services, you may ‘have had to rapidly move online or stop altogether and now, as restrictions and guidelines change, you are able to work differently and/or explore adaptations. Or simply that Government guidance means that you need to make adjustments to enable your organisation to remain open, operate and deliver your services safely.’
If you have any questions please either get back to me or contact CORRA directly to advise.
