The Robertson Trust’s new pilot micro grants programme, Wee Grants for Wee Groups, is now open for applications.
Constituted community groups and small registered charities with an annual income of £100,000 or less can apply for funding of £500-£2000, to fully or part-fund work, which fits with one of the funding strands.
- Care and Wellbeing – Improving the quality of life for those affected by physical and/or mental health issues and their carers
- Strengthening Communities – Increasing the ability and capacity of people and communities to create solutions which address local need
- Realising Potential – Developing confidence and resilience in young people, particularly those who face barriers to success
This can include your day to day running costs such as rent or utilities, project costs, sessional staff and items such as equipment or training materials.
The intention is to run the pilot for a period of six months, until December 20 and organisations can apply at any time, however, the anticipation is that demand for funding will be high, and if so the pilot could end early.
