The Trust provides funding to third sector organisations to deliver positive outcomes for the individuals and communities that they work with through three funding strands. Care and Wellbeing seeks to improve people's physical and mental health including: ensuring the best quality of life for Scotland’s vulnerable adults, including those directly or indirectly affected by dementia; improving the health and wellbeing of children and young people affected by mental and/or physical ill health; supporting adults with life limiting, long term health conditions or disability to overcome barriers and remain involved with their communities.
Strengthening Communities looks for solutions which address local need including: reducing health and social inequalities in Scotland’s communities; supporting people and communities to find routes out of poverty; empowering communities.
