    Created: 07/11/2018, Updated: 08/11/2018

    Scottish Government’s Challenge Fund and National Development Project Fund supporting the delivery of services to reduce problem drug and alcohol use.  These funding streams have been developed from the £20 million investment through our 2017 Programme for Government (PfG) to support activities around seeking and supporting new innovative approaches, as well as responding to the needs of patients in a more joined up person centred way to tackle problem alcohol and drug use:

    • A Challenge Fund: £2 million has been allocated to this fund for 2018-19, which includes £750,000 for Homelessness/Housing First.  This fund provides an opportunity for Integrated Authorities(IAs)/Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) and their partners to bid for money to deliver long term system change.   The Corra Foundation have agreed to manage this fund on behalf of the Scottish Government.  For information and how to apply contact Rowan Anderson on 0131 444 4020 or [email protected]
    • National Development Projects Fund:  £1 million has been allocated and is open to the Third Sector. The closing date for this round of applications is 06 December 2018.   For more information please click here.
