    Created: 28/03/2024
    News/Events Category: Funding and Finance


    Funded by the Scottish Government and supported by Inspiring Scotland, this £10m fund over four years provides funding to charities who support those affected by the negative consequences of childhood abuse, enabling them to enjoy the highest attainable standard of living, health and wellbeing, and family life.

    The Survivors of Childhood Abuse Support (SOCAS) fund has three overall intended outcomes:

    • An increased number of survivors are supported, leading to recovery from childhood abuse
    • Adult survivors receive an enhanced quality of support, resulting in better recovery and increased resilience
    • The survivor support sector is strengthened through collaborative and partnership work amongst third sector providers and statutory services

    Funding Available

    The fund will provide £3,345,000 over 18 months from 01 October 2024 until 31 March 2026, for organisations to build on the provision of support to adult survivors of childhood abuse.  

    This fund will focus on continuing and improving third sector services for adult survivors of childhood abuse in Scotland.
