The National Centre for Resilience is currently hosted by the University of Glasgow. They have announced their Third Sector, Community and Practice Fund for the new financial year, 2024-25.
The theme is about building resilience to natural hazards through local community and place-based approaches.
The funding call seeks to support 12-month projects that prioritise the adoption and implementation of local community and place-based approaches to build resilience. Projects should demonstrate a deep understanding of local issues, interconnections, and relationships within their specific setting while focusing on coordinating action and investment to improve the quality of life for their community. Additionally, projects should serve as frameworks for knowledge sharing and collaboration with other communities across Scotland facing similar challenges.
The fund is open to community groups, practitioners, and third sector organisations from across Scotland.
