A MULTI- MIL­LION- POUND fund to al­low Scot­tish com­mu­ni­ties to buy, man­age or de­velop build­ings or land is now avail­able.

Be­tween now and 2020 up to £45 mil­lion of Big Lot­tery Fund cash will be avail­able through Com­mu­nity As­sets to sup­port com­mu­nity-led projects to de­velop or build as­sets for their pub­lic use.

Groups can ap­ply for grants of be­tween £10,000 and £1 mil­lion and, where needed, will re­ceive pro­fes­sional tech­ni­cal sup­port and ad­vice from Com­mu­nity As­set men­tors to turn project ideas into re­al­ity.
