  • The Hunter Foundation - The Innovation Fund

    Created: 31/05/2018

    The Innovation Fund (“TIF”) is collaboration between the Scottish Government and The Hunter Foundation. TIF seeks applications from community, local charity groups or Local Authorities, Health Boards or any statutory service with ambitious, yet feasible plans to combat child poverty in their area.

    TIF is looking to fund either:

    • new and innovative approaches that will have an impact on reducing child poverty in a way that helps families to remain out of poverty for a minimum 3 year period and that is viable and sustainable practice for the public sector or third sector; or
    • expansion of existing, proven approaches to reducing child poverty that will again have an impact on reducing child poverty and in a way that families can remain out of poverty for a minimum of 3 years and that organisations involved can sustain.

    The ambition of all plans must be the delivery of increases in income or the reduction of costs for families living in poverty.
