The Women’s Fund for Scotland seeks grant applications
The Women’s Fund for Scotland (WFS) wants to find Arran community groups that empower women and girls to reach their potential.
WFS has reopened for grant applications with a deadline of September 28.
The fund tackles inequality by funding projects that build skills and confidence; improve health and well-being; build social networks and allow women to move on from violence.
Local groups meeting the WFS criteria can apply to the small grants programme, which distributes grants of £500 to £2,000, or the multi-year large grants programme – of up to £30,000 over three years.
It has also removed the cap of £250,000 on annual turnover to allow charities and community groups of any size to apply.
Shona Blakeley, WFS development manager said: ‘We are keen to hear from Arran community groups as there has been a lack of grant applications from the area.
