Foundation Scotland - The Provident Social Impact Fund (Scotland)


The Provident Social Impact Fund (Scotland) aims to support social inclusion and will invest in activities that seek to alleviate the underlying problems that prevent social inclusion and enjoyment of a full modern life.

Projects should meet one of the following themes:

  • Improving people’s personal finance capabilities (debt and financial advice/education)
  • Improving physical and/or mental health
  • Providing support which enhances, creates and sustains positive family relationships
  • Addressing issues of low educational attainment and improving learning outcomes
  • Providing people with opportunities to reduce inequality, exclusion and disadvantage, including projects which increase access to employment.

Funding is available only for groups operating in or supporting people living within Greenock Town Centre and East Central Inverclyde. Priority will be given to applications from small, locally-based community groups in areas of social, financial and welfare disadvantage.
