  • Bank of Scotland's Reach programme [disadvantage & social exclusion]

    Created: 05/10/2020, Updated: 24/11/2020

    The Bank of Scotland's Reach programme is suitable for charities who can demonstrate that they work to address disadvantage or social exclusion in communities. This will ensure that the funding will reach the most vulnerable people across Scotland and provide charities with an opportunity to make positive and sustainable change.


    Examples include charities addressing primary disadvantage such as homelessness, abuse, mental health or poverty, or secondary disadvantage such as debt issues, learning disabilities, illiteracy, lack of employability skills or health issues.

    Social Exclusion

    Examples include charities addressing exclusionary challenges for minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT people, drug users, institutional care leavers, the elderly or the young.

    Who can apply?

    Charities with an income of £1.5m or less can apply to this fund. You cannot apply if you are a newly registered charity operational for less than one year with no accounts lodged at OSCR. 

    This fund re-opened on 23 November 2020 for a short period of time and will close at 12:00 on 26 November 2020. Future rounds are in January and June 2021.
