Community organisations in Gorgie and Dalry may be interested in the following funding opportunities to support community responses to COVID-19.

Please contact organisations directly via the links below with any applications or queries, as GDCC is only sharing information provided by the funders, and is not involved in any of the funding opportunities.

Foundation Scotland Response, Recovery & Resilience Fund:

“In partnership with the National Emergencies Trust we are providing funding to support charities and constituted community groups that have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Whilst the first phase of funding focused on meeting communities most immediate needs, the fund is now focusing on Recovery. As some lockdown restrictions are lifted this phase of funding will support organisations to continue their operations in the ‘new normal’, to re-establish or re-design their activities to comply with new regulations in addition to providing emergency support for those who need it most. Applications are now open and grants from £1,000 to £5,000 are available. Due to a limit in funds we encourage organisations to submit their online application at their earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.”
