Scotland regional grants : GREGGS

January 25, 2013

The Scotland region makes grants according to general guidelines as below. To apply for a grant, please follow the link at the bottom of the page.

The Regional Grants programme makes small grants of up to £2,000 to help organisations based in local communities to deliver activities that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to. The programme is administered by seven charity committees throughout Great Britain.

Regional grants are made to charitable organisations who meet our mission statement of making a difference to people in need in the heart of our local communities. The following should be used as a guide to help you understand the mission statement and whether or not your grant application is likely to succeed.

Who do we support?

We can support most organisations that are not for profit. Please see our excluded items list at the bottom of this page to see the few exceptions that we are unable to support. The programme prioritises smaller organisations based in defined local communities.

What type of project can we support?

The regional grant programme supports additional activities that are not part of the core service. We call these projects. We can consider a range of projects as long as they have a defined start and end date and support people in need as below.  We don’t support running costs or contributions towards larger projects such as building or refurbishment work.

Who are people in need?

We can consider any project that supports people in need.  We consider people in need to be those who live in highly disadvantaged parts of Great Britain or from one of our priority groups, ie people who are:

• Disabled or suffering chronic illness

• Living in poverty

• Voluntary carers

• Homeless

• Isolated older people
