  • Faiths in Scotland Community Action Fund

    Created: 18/01/2017

    The Faiths in Scotland Community Action Fund (FiSCAF) is inviting faith groups to apply for grants of up to £15,000.

    The Faiths in Scotland Community Action Fund, in partnership with the STV Appeal, is accepting general applications for work with all age groups, with an emphasis on applications from faith groups and associated projects tackling poverty amongst children, young people and families in Scotland.

    Successful projects will be awarded a grant of up to £15,000 over two or three years. Some of these partnership awards will be made for a one-year period.

    To be eligible, projects must:

    • Identify a particular need with regards local children and/or young people up to the age of 18 and/or their families;
    • Encourage the widest possible participation; and
    • Build real and meaningful relationships with the wider community.

    The following levels of funding are available:

    Major Grants of up to £15,000 are available. This may be spread over a maximum of three years, with no more than £7,500 being awarded in the first year. FiSCAF will give priority to start-up projects.

    Small Grants of between £500 and £2,000 are available to be used in one year.

    Local faith groups in Scotland that are registered charities with a signed and dated constitution and a bank account can apply.

    The 2017 deadlines for applications are:

    • Friday 10 February (exclusively for groups working with children and young adults)
    • Friday 07 April; and
    • Friday 29 September.
