  • Covid Adapt and Thrive Programme - re-establishing services in our communities

    Created: 07/07/2020

    The Covid Adapt and Thrive Programme aims to allow community groups to continue to deliver their projects and to develop new ones by helping to meet the additional financial burden of minimising infection risk, pursuant to current Scottish Government Guidelines on COVID-19.

    Awards of £500 to £5,000 are available to organisations in eligible coalfields communities such as community centres, youth clubs, miners welfares, sports clubs etc. that will enable them to reopen post lockdown and re-establish a service to their community. 

    Who can apply?

    All projects will be required to confirm that they are adhering to current Scottish Government Covid 19 Guidelines, as well as provide:

    • Constitution - showing not for profit or charitable status.
    • Accounts – for the last full year or a cash flow projection for new groups.
    • Bank Statement – from the last three months
    • Quotes – for items exceeding £500.

    See here for further details on the type of work organisations should be involved in.

    There is no definitive deadline for this fund.

    E-mail [email protected] to request an application form. A short phone discussion will be arranged to ensure your project meets the fund's eligibility requirements.
