Grab A Grant - Volunteering Matters Action Earth
Volunteering Matters Action Earth 2021 grants are now available to help support with habitat creation and improving local green spaces. After a difficult year we know that volunteer groups are eager to scale-up or restart their environmental activities across Scotland.
We are now on a 6-month countdown to COP26 - the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. Global attention will be on Scotland during this period and we want to showcase our amazing Action Earth volunteers and projects to the World!
Our standard grants of up to £250 are available to purchase plants, tools and materials. We also have a very limited number of grants at a higher level to assist projects where people with defined health & social needs make up at least 50% of the volunteer numbers. Projects must adhere to developing Government guidance.

Funder of the Week
*CLOSING DATE - 22 MAY*
The New Scots Refugee Integration Delivery Project
Please note that the fund will not support ‘business as usual’. If you are applying for funding to support an existing documented project you will need to demonstrate that the project will either a) expand to a new geographical area, b) work with a new population or c) work with a new partnership.
In the guidance notes they provide some examples of who can apply, what for and how much. Below are just 2. More examples here
Example Three: A refugee-led community organisation (RCO) has been running a successful English conversation café in a local area which brings together refugees and other residents to develop social connections. The RCO wants to apply for £30,000 to partner with a student-led organisation to expand this programme to three new areas. The RCO applies in partnership with the student-led organisation for a LARGE GRANT under TOPIC 1 to SPREAD GOOD PRACTICE.
Example Five: A charity has been delivering an IT training programme to members of the local community to provide users with basic computer literacy skills. They want to apply for £18,000 to develop this training into a tailored online toolkit as a resources for other organisations across Scotland to support refugees with IT skills. The charity applies for a MEDIUM GRANT under TOPIC 10 to SUPPORT INNOVATION.
