Hamil­ton West MP Mar­garet Fer­rier has called on char­i­ties, so­cial en­ter­prises, com­mu­nity groups and schools to ap­ply for fund­ing of­fered through the RBS Skills and Op­por­tu­ni­ties Fund.

Grants of up to £35,000 are be­ing of­fered to help peo­ple get work or set up a busi­ness and ap­pli­cants have un­til Fri­day, Septem­ber 9, to ap­ply.

Ms Fer­rier said: “There are plenty of or­gan­i­sa­tions across Hamil­ton West that could ben­e­fit from this fund.

“This money could go a long way in help­ing peo­ple gain skills and ac­cess op­por­tu­ni­ties, en­abling them to turn their lives around and build bet­ter com­mu­ni­ties for ev­ery­one. The fund is there to be put to good use, and I would en­cour­age lo­cal char­i­ties and groups to make an ap­pli­ca­tion.”

The fund­ing is to sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tions that help peo­ple to de­velop, cre­ate or ac­cess the skills and op­por­tu­ni­ties they need to help them­selves. Go to skill­san­doppor­tu­ni­ties­fund. to ap­ply for fund­ing.
