The Martin Currie Community Partnership Programme aims to support registered charities and constituted community groups based in and working in Scotland, with priority given to those based in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Projects must be addressing at least one of the following themes:

  • The promotion of diversity and inclusion. This includes projects and activities that address inequality, providing people with opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have access to.
  • Social and environmental sustainability. This includes projects which aim to improve sustainability. This may include activities such as the reuse, recycling and upcycling of resources and materials or the upskilling of individuals through training and education.
