Cash up for grabs
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. rbs.com to apply for funding.
