The research will also provide a key section of the evidence base being gathered as part of Scotland’s participation in a UK-wide research study on the role of volunteering in the pandemic.

Funding to Empower Women and Womens' Organisations
Funding is available to support small women’s groups and organisations to develop innovative ways of empowering women in their local area and build the capacity of small organisations. The fund is divided into two strands. Seed funding grants of between £500 and £1,000 will support small women’s groups to establish and run micro women’s empowerment projects in their local area that support women to build skills and confidence and decrease social isolation; and Women’s Sector grants of between £1,000 and £25,000 which will support women’s groups and organisations to develop capacity to respond to changing needs in their communities and run projects over a fixed duration of at least 6 months. The deadline for applications is 5pm on 28 May 2021.

Applications are particularly welcomed from charities working to support migrants, refugees and asylum seekers; criminal justice and penal reform; and human rights, particularly access to justice. The Trust generally makes one-off grants to charities with annual incomes of between £150,000 and £1.5m that do not have substantial investments or surpluses.

Local Energy Scotland Survey
Local Energy Scotland are currently carrying out an online stakeholder survey as part of a review of CARES. We are asking our stakeholders to fill out a short questionnaire to find out more about the types of projects they think would be of interest over the next four years and the types of support they would need to help them progress these projects.
Our short survey should take less than five minutes to complete. The answers you provide will remain anonymous and will help us to shape and improve the support that CARES will provide over the next four years.
We want to know what type of support you think will help your community transition to net zero, as well as what kinds of projects you might be interested in over the coming years. We’d also like to hear your ideas on how CARES can further encourage and support community participation from across all of Scotland’s diverse communities.
Please complete the survey by Monday 24 May
