Supporting Scotland’s vibrant voluntary sector

Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations is the membership organisation for Scotland's charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. Charity registered in Scotland SC003558. Registered office Mansfield Traquair Centre, 15 Mansfield Place, Edinburgh EH3 6BB.


The Gannochy Trust is an independent grant maker, informed by its Funding Strategy and Guidance for 2019 to 2022. During this funding strategy, the greater percentage of the Trust’s funding will be aimed at groups and organisations within Perth and Kinross.

Organisations within Perth and Kinross can apply for funding: improve the quality of life for people; develop and inspire young people and improve the availability or quality of the built and natural environment for wide community use.

In the rest of Scotland the “develop and inspire young people” strand is available to organisations which support direct work with young people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable in communities that have limited access to resources and opportunities. The Trust aims to fund the most compelling projects or organisations that deliver the outcomes that they hope to achieve with our funding, particularly for young people.

The Trust will accept applications from organisations working in areas such as community, sport, culture including art, music and dance, youth work, environment, health and wellbeing and heritage.
