    The UK Government has announced the award of circa £8m at the last round of Community Ownership Projects in Scotland. Community Ownership Fund Round 3, Bidding Window 3, is now open for applicants who have successfully passed the expression of interest stage.

    The purpose of the funding is to take ownership of assets at risk of loss in your community. The aims are to:  

    • Support community groups to take ownership of assets which are at risk of being lost to the community
    • Support community groups where the asset is already in community ownership but needs essential renovations to be sustainable for the long-term benefit of the community
    • Strengthen community ownership across the UK
    • Strengthen the social infrastructure that helps communities to thrive

    Who Can Apply 

    Incorporated voluntary and community organisations and parish, town and community councils (depending on eligibility requirements). 

    Funding Available 

    No more than £50,000 or 20% of the total capital funding applied for, whichever is smaller. They encourage all groups to apply, as all projects will incur initial running costs. 

    How to Apply
