 Building Collaboration Fund
Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland is working in partnership with the Scottish Government to support the development of collaborations in the social care sector through the Building Collaboration Fund. The £100,000 fund recognises the huge promise of organisations working together to improve their offer to the people they collectively support. Funding of between £5000 and £25,000 is available for up to 6 collaborations during 19/20 to provide practical support for progressing the collaboration. Successful applicants will also participate in a structured peer learning programme which will provide additional support for overcoming some of the barriers to successful collaboration. The knowledge and learning gained from these sessions will help inform future collaborations in the social care sector. If you’re interested in applying, please visit: http://www.ccpscotland.org/hot-topics/collaboration/building-collaboration-fund/ and submit the application form by 5pm on Monday the 18th March.
Round 7 of the Digital Participation Charter Fund is now open for applications
The Digital Participation Charter Fund (formerly Challenge Fund), supported by the Scottish Government and BT, invests in community digital participation projects across Scotland. It provides small grants (typically up to £10,000) to help a range of organisations tackle poverty, social isolation and other forms of inequality in society through embedding essential digital skills development work in day-to-day activity with their service users.  The projects supported will enable groups and organisations to improve the digital skills of their members, digitise content and build networks so that they can continue to thrive in the digital world.  For more information  https://scvo.org/digital/participation/charter-fund/call-for-funding
