Corra Foundation: Winter Support Small Grant Fund

 

The Winter Support Small Grants Fund is a £500,000 Scottish Government fund administered by Corra Foundation.

  • 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
  • The fund will provide up to £5,000 per group to provide families and individuals with tangible support they need this winter
  • The support you provide to people is likely to be in the form of vouchers or cash to meet pressing needs such as food, fuel, household items, clothing or extra costs over the holiday period (for example gifts for children)
  • All funds must be passed on to families and individuals by 31 March 2022
  • Please only apply for the amount of money that you are confident you can distribute by 31 March 2022. The minimum your group can apply for is £500

The Fund aims to reach groups who:

  • Have strong local relationships with people in the community
  • Are already supporting people in their communities on low incomes
  • Have an annual income of less than £100,000, not including any COVID emergency grants your organisation received

The Scottish Government Winter Support Small Grants Fund has now closed due to overwhelming demand, but may open again in the the New Year. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis and please note the fund may close early if all the money has been allocated.
