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.


The Culture Fund is open to applications from organisations planning cultural events, activities or projects taking place in Orkney between 1 April 2024 and 31 March 2025. In this instance ‘culture’ means arts, heritage, or language (i.e. Orkney dialect). This includes festivals, museums, heritage centres and arts projects and is aimed at enabling Orkney residents to access the highest quality cultural events and activities as well as publicising Orkney to visitors. The fund is managed by the Arts, Museums and Heritage Service and the total available fund and any funds allocated to successful applicants are subject to Orkney Islands Council’s budget setting process. The Culture Fund supports formally constituted not-for-profit organisations in producing, delivering or promoting cultural activity and/or programmes. This fund will support cultural organisations for their general running costs as well as specific activities. It will also support non-cultural organisations to deliver cultural activities and programmes. Applicants will have to have clear financial procedures and produce audited accounts in keeping with the scale of their operation.
