Funding is available for projects which are principally of direct benefit to individuals and groups of people within the Glengarry community council area.
Grants are available to other charities, not-for-profit groups or individuals who must have their main activity in or reside in the Glengarry area.
There is funding available for:
- Groups and organisations
- An individual applicant hoping to complete a training course or funding towards a musical instrument or attending sporting competitions
- People needing social care support to live in the community (e.g. those with disabilities or the elderly) and who have been assessed as needing specific adaptations to their home by social work services
- Students furthering their education
Grants are available for a wide range of activities including: education, community development projects, arts, heritage, health, sport, the environment and recreation.
The project or activity you are seeking funding for must not start until after the grant has been awarded and you have accepted the terms and conditions of the grant. This means that you will need to plan ahead if you wish to make an application for funding. We will make an exception for students who have already started their academic course, given that we only meet four times each year, as long as the appropriate supporting information is attached to the application.
Groups or organisations applying for funding for a project involving children, young people or vulnerable adults must have a policy that explains how you will make sure they will be safe.
