CalMac Ferries Limited - CalMac Community Fund


The CalMac Community Fund supports work which will help people connect with services and each other, and especially helping those who are most in need.

They would like to support groups and projects working to tackle the following key themes:

  • Reducing social isolation
  • Improving health and wellbeing
  • Addressing issues related to poverty, especially in relation to the cost-of-living crisis.
  • Local and community transport.

They are keen on applications from groups who are volunteer led, projects which are showing connection and collaboration with other groups in their area, and projects which are seeking to better engage with volunteers.

Projects must take place in the islands and mainland port towns that CalMac operate.
