Second phase of Third Sector Resilience Fund

The Scottish Government has announced a second phase to the fund and pledged additional funding.

For Phase 2 of the Third Sector Resilience Fund, the guidance and criteria have been adapted to maximise the number of third sector organisations that benefit from it:

  • Applicants must be at risk of or unable to cover essential costs within 12 weeks from the date of application
  • The maximum grant amount awarded will be £75,000
  • Funding requests must be for a three month period (previously four months)
  • Eligible costs will be mostly limited to overheads and essential staff (administrative for example) who cannot be furloughed. Please visit the FAQs section for more detailed information
  • All grant applications requesting £50,000 or more will be considered for a loan, a grant or a blended approach (part grant, part loan)
