Community Paths: Your Choice
This grant offers community groups up to £1500 to provide the resources they need to upgrade, promote and maintain path networks close to where they live. The new grant scheme puts communities in control of deciding which projects should receive funding.
To be eligible for funding your project must engage at least one of the following groups:
young people (up to 26 years old);
people on low incomes;
people with poor physical or mental health, or people who are experiencing exclusion (such as a disability or through their ethnicity); or
communities in or close to our towns or cities, particularly those in the 20% most deprived areas (see Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation).
It is a condition of this funding that you must match the amount you have applied for with a volunteer ‘in kind’ contribution. Your project must involve at least 8 volunteers who must each contribute a minimum of one day to your project.
