Community Response, Recovery & Resilience Fund


In partnership with the National Emergencies Trust, Foundation Scotland is delivering the Community Response, Recovery and Resilience Fund. Now in the Resilience phase, the fund's priority is supporting organisations with their long-term planning, helping them become more sustainable in the future, despite the continued uncertainty.

The aims of the Resilience phase are to

  • Strengthen communities by improving their ability to respond to future and continued challenges due to the pandemic
  • Strengthen organisations to be sustainable in the longer term, through staff development of internal infrastructure
  • Support organisations to increase their service provision to meet growing needs.
