ASDA - Feeding Communities’ Grant helps provide meals to anyone in need in the lead up to Christmas. With more local and national lockdowns in place and changes anticipated to the coming weeks, supporting those with food provision is needed more than ever
Funder of the Week
This week we have looked at National Lottery Heritage Fund. Section 2 of the application asks about your Project Outcomes.
Outcomes are the difference you want to make with our funding through a set of nine outcomes, which are listed in the application form. Outcomes are changes, impacts or benefits that happen as a direct result of your project. This funding is designed to focus on two of the nine outcomes the mandatory outcome must be achieved in all projects:
The funded organisation will be more resilient
To achieve this outcome, you will need to outline how your heritage project will help your organisation to begin to recover and adapt to the continuing Covid-19 crisis, particularly in places worst affected by Covid-19. This work could include reviewing existing business models and plans, developing new approaches to opening to the public during social distancing, and developing new ways of working
A wider range of people will be involved in heritage (mandatory)
To achieve this outcome you will need to outline how you meet our mandatory inclusion outcome through your funded activity and/or delivery of a inclusion focused activity led by or engaging diverse groups typically underrepresented in heritage (young people, minority ethnic, LGBT+ communities, disabled people and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds).

Scottish Refugee Council secure additional funding

Scheme 2 will support refugee-assisting organisations with grants up to £5,000 for a minimum 40 groups.
