• be undertaken by registered charities that hold a charity bank account • be delivered in Scotland

• work with the most vulnerable families with children at a demonstrably high risk of being negatively impacted by poverty

• demonstrate involvement of individuals and communities that understand and have experience of the issues that poverty presents

• work outside, or supplementary to, statutory responsibilities

• clearly demonstrate positive impacts

Examples of projects or activities that we may consider funding include those delivering:

• employability and skills training within a local community • mentoring or one to one support, building the self confidence and skills required to enter the employment market

• provision of and access to the technical equipment required to pursue employment or further education
