Corra Foundation - Winter Support Small Grants Fund


The purpose of the Winter Support Small Grants Fund is to provide small grants to charities and community groups across Scotland who can pass the funding on to families and individuals on low incomes.

They expect that successful applicants to this fund will be organisations who are already supporting families and individuals on low incomes through other activities. This might include projects such as: children’s groups, lunch clubs, churches/faith groups, youth groups, food pantries/banks.

Examples of what cash payments or vouchers could cover:

  • food/essential items
  • fuel costs
  • phone/internet costs
  • warm clothing
  • extra costs over the holiday season (for example gifts for children)
  • other essentials that you can show are needed by the people you support
