Funding to support third sector organisations impacted by coronavirus – 04.06.20 - compiled for you by our Strategic Investment Officer, Susan Robinson.

Scottish Children's Lottery: Chance to Flourish programme is now open, with the aspiration of alleviating the impact of poverty or financial hardship, social exclusion, relative/multiple deprivation and disability or illness to young people. Small grants of up to £5,000 or large grants, up to £25,000, although the fund prefers to support up to 50% of any specific project. To apply:

Young Scot: Nurturing Talent - Time to Shine Fund. This scheme aims to support the artistic and creative ideas of young people aged 11 to 25. It will support young people who show ambition, enthusiasm or talent in their chosen art form and require some financial support to develop or promote this further. Funding may also be awarded to those who face significant barriers to access, such as rural isolation or additional support requirements. Deadline: Sunday 14 June 2020. Maximum grant: £1,000. Link:

Foundation Scotland - Scotch Whisky Action Fund. The fund will support and develop a range of projects/initiatives, which deliver targeted interventions designed to tackle alcohol-related harms across three themes: young people aged under 18; families; and communities. Research commissioned by the Scotch Whisky Association suggests there are gaps in provision across each of these themes and that the range of interventions and good practice are not fully developed. The Fund will focus on applications from new/innovative or pilot initiatives, which aim to test new approaches and will offer an opportunity for learning that others can use. Deadline: Thursday 2 July 2020. Maximum grant: £25,000. Link:
