Caithness Community Groups Among 258 Scottish Awards By Scottish Government

10th May 2020

Local groups in Scotland get a £10 million boost.

Families on lower incomes and older people are to get more support with extra funding for lifeline services to cope with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The funding from the Scottish Government's Supporting Communities Fund will go directly to more than 250 community groups.

The community groups operate as ‘anchors', bringing together charities, volunteers, social enterprises and the public sector to co-ordinate the local response and channel support where it is needed. This includes making hot meals, organising grocery and prescription deliveries and providing wellbeing support.

Communities Secretary Aileen Campbell said:"We know that community groups working in the heart of our communities and neighbourhoods have a wealth of experience in responding to challenges. We have seen this through many examples of the incredible response to COVID-19 in the past weeks that have made such a huge difference to so many people. This inspiring work that is already underway in our neighbourhoods is proving essential to our nation's resilience.

"This funding will be a valuable lifeline for the range of innovative support available for people in our communities, and we are working fast to get that support to where it is needed most."
Background

The Supporting Communities Fund was announced on 18 March 2020 as part of a £350 million package to help those most affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Up to £10 million is being made available as an initial sum available to support community anchor organisations, and a further allocation of £10 million has been approved to support the second phase of the fund.

Supporting Communities Fund
The Supporting Communities Fund has been established with an initial £20m investment.

It is providing funding to Community Anchor Organisations, such as charities, voluntary organisations, community controlled housing associations and social enterprises to help support local responses to the pandemic.

These community anchor organisations are already playing a key active role in providing services within their community and through this funding will be supported expand their existing networks and connections.

They are well placed to work collaboratively and will help to support a coordinated approach locally, working with other active local charities, third sector organisations, volunteers, communities of interest and making links with the Local Authority, Third Sector Interfaces and other statutory providers, and can act as a conduit for funding to help channel support to where it is needed.
