RRR Fund – Maximum income cap removed

Posted by Christie McAlpine on 21st September 2020

Thanks to an increase in funding, Foundation Scotland have widened the scope of their Response, Recovery and Resilience Fund to support even more organisations with their recovery. They have removed the income cap for organisations wishing to apply, which was previously set at £250,000 per annum.

Since the end of March, Foundation Scotland have supported almost 900 grassroots organisations with £3.5 million in response and recovery funds, using the learnings to revise their funding criteria, ensuring they meet the ever changing needs of communities.

Through the RRR Fund they are particularly keen to hear from organisations delivering services in the following 5 areas:

  • Supporting those experiencing, or at risk of domestic abuse
  • Supporting those with poor or worsening mental health (e.g. compulsion, dependencies, depression, isolation, self-harm, suicide, eating disorders)
  • Helping to improve access to critical advice, services, or care (owing to poor digital inclusion or language barriers)
  • Supporting those with no recourse to public funds
  • Supporting those experiencing bereavement.

Helen Wray, Programme Manager said; “By opening up the application criteria to a wider number of charitable organisations we know we can reach even more projects offering vital support in these areas.  We couldn’t do any of this without our funding partner the National Emergencies Trust who have supported more than 10,000 UK-wide by working closely with community foundations like ours across the country.”
