The Community Capacity and Resilience Fund (CCRF) from Scottish Government aims to support local, community-based organisations with small grants of up to £8,000 to deliver activities that help people mitigate the impact of welfare reform. To be eligible for a grant, organisations must have had an income of less than £200,000 in their last financial year. Grants can be spent over 12 months and the aim is to deliver a simple way to support organisations to trial new ideas and build capacity, so they can be more ready to access larger funding pots from elsewhere or develop fruitful local partnerships or initiatives.
Applications should be able to demonstrate:
- How they will help bring organisations together in partnership to support people
- How they will develop people’s ability to prevent themselves from reaching crisis point
- Who will be supported by the activity
- What impact the activity will have on people locally in mitigating welfare reform, and on the way in which the organisation operates
