Engage Daily Update - 28 January
Community and Third Sector Recovery Programme Update
The £40 million programme was launched in September 2020 to provide support for Third Sector Organisations (TSOs), such as charities, community groups, social enterprises and voluntary organisations through lockdown and as we begin to move towards recovery from the pandemic. The programme has two strands:
- Adapt and Thrive aims to support organisational recovery and change.
- Communities Recovery Fund aims to support the delivery of current and new community services.
Organisations can apply to either or both strands of the fund through a single online application available on the SCVO website at: Community & Third Sector Recovery Programme – SCVO along with information about the programme and the eligibility/criteria for each strand of the the programme.
Support and funding available to help charities adapt post-Covid - Recovery for the third sector has not been straightforward, and lockdowns, changes to guidelines and the tier system will continue to be part of our daily lives in 2021. As a response, Adapt and Thrive has adapted and from 11 January, all eligible organisations can access funding regardless of turnover size and the top value of grants has increased to £75K

Funding is available to creative individuals, groups and businesses in Scotland to help run successful crowdfunding campaigns in the arts, screen or creative industries. Creative Scotland and Crowdfunder have come together to support the arts and creative industries which have suffered substantially from the impact of the coronavirus crisis

Rights-based training for unpaid carers of people with dementia, January-March 2021
This training has been developed because carers are often unaware of their rights, and this lack of awareness can impact on carers accessing care and support, benefits, and only getting help once a crisis occurs.
