Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund reopened

7 July 2021

Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund

The Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund, administered by Corra Foundation, has reopened for applications with refreshed criteria.

The Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund is a £1 million Scottish Government fund administered by Corra Foundation. Over £600,000 has been distributed in phase one (February – May 2021). The next phase which opened on 1st July will support groups to access the remaining funds.

The purpose of the Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund is to provide small grants to community and voluntary groups across Scotland who are delivering activities that connect and support people within their local community.

The Fund aims to reach groups who:

  • Have strong local relationships with people in the community.
  • Are already supporting people in their communities to reconnect and improve wellbeing.
  • Have an annual income of less than £50,000.

Groups can apply for up to £3,000 and funding could help your group to continue to deliver support or activities in your local area over the next 12 months.

Groups who are currently in receipt of Scottish Government funding eg. Community Recovery Fund or Adapt and Thrive, are not eligible to apply.

Community councils can find out more and apply on the Corra Foundation website.
