Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund

Community Accessible ParkThe Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund has reopened for applications with refreshed criteria.

The Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund is a £1 million Scottish Government fund administered by Corra Foundation. Over £600,000 has been distributed in phase one (February – May 2021). The next phase, commencing 1st July, will support groups to access the remaining funds.

The purpose of the Enabling Neighbourhoods and Communities Fund is to provide small grants to community and voluntary groups across Scotland who are delivering activities that connect and support people within their local community.

The Fund aims to reach groups who:

  • Have strong local relationships with people in the community.
  • Are already supporting people in their communities to reconnect and improve wellbeing.
  • Have an annual income of less than £50,000.
  • Groups who are currently in receipt of Scottish Government funding eg. Community Recovery Fund or Adapt and Thrive are not eligible to apply.
