The Third Sector Resilience Fund

Applications are now open for the Third Sector Resilience Fund!

The Third Sector Resilience Fund will support organisations across the third sector in Scotland who are at risk of closure due to a sharp decrease in income or that are unable to deliver their services directly as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. The aim of the fund is to help these organisations to stabilise and manage cashflows over this difficult period.

The Fund offers grants of £5,000-£100,000. In addition there are a further £5m available in fully flexible, 0% interest loans starting at £50,000. More information available at SCVO’s Third Sector Information Hub .
