Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) Community Grant

Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) Community Grant

Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) Community Grant has been extended to March 2013

Aimed at Scotland’s smaller community groups and voluntary organisations, the Community Grant provides grants of up to £1,000 and free training to groups with an annual income under £25,000. These small, volunteer-led community groups make a vital difference to their communities. Their activities keep communities vibrant and encourage community empowerment and participation. They provide essential local services and contribute to social capital, resilience and wellbeing.

To apply for the £1,000 grant, groups must have:

ü      An annual income below £25,000 (excluding any income for capital items such as buildings and equipment)

ü      A signed constitution or set of rules in the name of the group

ü      A bank account in the name of the group with 2 signatories on all cheques

ü      An independent referee who can vouch for the group and has knowledge of the plans for using the grant
