SCVO - Community Capacity and Resilience Fund
The Community Capacity and Resilience Fund (CCRF) from the Scottish Government aims to support local, community-based organisations with small grants to deliver activities that help people mitigate the impact of welfare reform.
CCRF will support organisations to try creative approaches that mitigate the impact of welfare reform, promote social inclusion, combat inequality, and increase partnership working.
The Fund presents an opportunity for organisations to develop new ways of working to mitigate the effects of welfare reform, combat poverty and social inequality, promote social inclusion and have a preventative impact in their communities.
The aim of the fund is to support organisations where there currently isn’t the capacity or resources, therefore, unfortunately, the scheme cannot fund any existing work, core costs or management fees.
Who can apply?
To be eligible for a grant, organisations must have had an income of less than £200,000 in their last financial year.
How to apply?
Apply online via the SCVO website. There is a word template of the application form which they recommend using to draft your answers.
