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.


In 2022, Henry Duncan Grants will fund organisations that can demonstrate that they are supporting children and young people (aged 6-26 years) to overcome the impacts of inequality in their lives.

There are two priority areas for funding this year:

  1. Organisations that are supporting children and young people to shape their own lives.
  2. Organisations that are supporting children and young people to develop skills for the future.

Henry Duncan Grants provide unrestricted funding. You can use the money to deliver any aspect of your work with children and young people, including projects or the general running costs for example paying staff, rent and overheads (heating etc).

The fund will focus on a different theme each year:

  • 2022: Supporting children and young people facing challenges
  • 2023: Increasing opportunities for disabled people and people with long term conditions
  • 2024: Supporting people experiencing inequality or discrimination
