Community capacity & resilience fund reopens

Posted on 7th July 2021 by Christie McAlpine

The Community Capacity and Resilience Fund (CCRF) from Scottish Government aims to support local, community-based organisations with small grants of up to £8,000 to deliver activities that help people mitigate the impact of welfare reform. 

The Fund presents an opportunity for organisations to develop new ways of working to mitigate the effects of welfare reform, combat poverty and social inequality, promote social inclusion and have a preventative impact in their communities.  

Previous rounds of the Community Capacity & Resilience Fund have delivered a broad range of successful projects – all unique in their delivery but aligned in their focus. This new round is launching with the coronavirus pandemic as a backdrop and applications will therefore need to develop approaches that will ensure continuity of provision and a blended approach to service delivery. 

How to apply

Full guidance is available on the SCVO website. For more information on the fund, please use the Programme Helpdesk to contact the team.

Applications should be made online and close at 12 noon on 10 September 2021. There are two Approval Panel meetings during the course of the application window. This means applications submitted earlier in the process will be assessed and therefore contracted and able to start first.
