Funding ScotlandCheck out the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) website for a wide range of funding guidance and support for charities, community groups and social enterprises. 

The funding section of the SCVO website includes:

  • Finding Funding – advice and guidance on what to consider when looking for and applying for funding.
  • Funding blogposts – sharing funding news, top tips and opportunities.
  • Fortnightly funding updates for SCVO members.
  • Training events to help you find funds and fundraise for your charity/group.
  • Funding Scotland – This free online funding search engine, maintained by SCVO, provides information on over 1200 funds and includes grants, loans, prizes and other financial support.

New funding search services will be launched in early 2017 which will include: Funding Scotland Pro – an advanced funding search platform designed to give professional fundraisers and organisations extra functionality for a small annual fee, and Funding Scotland Digital Platform – an advanced search platform designed to provide local authorities, public sector organisations and third sector intermediary bodies with a customisable online funding search.

Organisations with an income of under £50,000 per year can join SCVO for free.
