Funding Opportunities from Caithness Funds
9th September 2017
There have been a growing number of funds available to groups in Caithness in recent years with more to come as more wind farms come on stream. The problem for anyone looking for funding is where to start.
Caithness Voluntary Group can help with information and ideas.
Here is a listing of a few and we will add to them as we get information.
Please feel free to let us know of any others not yet listed. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
They all have different criteria and areas they will give funds to. It does take time to research them all but hopefully a list will help anyone get started.
Thanks to Tom Briscoe, Lybster & Tannach Local Development Officer who sent in this initial listing at the request of Linda Malik, Thrumster.
Links will be added on the site to try and make it easy to find in the future.
