You will be aware that each Neighbourhood Network has a small funding scheme (CGF) that is available for local community groups.
We have funds available right now for projects in Almond NN area (up to £5000, though smaller applications welcomed).
Any group with a constitution and a bank account may be eligible. (If your group is not constituted or does not have a bank account, please contact us as it may be possible to get another local group to Lead on the application or to get assistance to get constituted).
If you have an idea for a project, for example to purchase a new or replacement piece of equipment, to pilot or develop a new service, or to help promote your group, please get in touch. The application process is very simple and forms, guidance and more info of type of project funded in the past and what we can and cannot fund can be found here: https://www.edinburghpartnership.scot/get-involved
We are always keen to hear from new groups, so please help us widen our reach and forward this to your contacts.
The aim of this fund is to support small projects that aim to improve quality of life of local people, and help us progress our North West Locality Improvement Plan (LIP) Priorities below.
- Social Isolation,
- Employment and skills
- ‘North Edinburgh’, which is recognised as the area where numbers of people experiencing poverty and greater inequality of outcome exceeds that of other areas in the Locality.
