All Churches - Hope Beyond grants programme
All Churches Hope Beyond grants programme aims to enable churches and Christian charities to meet changing needs within their communities, helping them and the communities they support to adapt to the challenges and opportunities presented by the Coronavirus pandemic. This programme will address three themes: reducing loneliness and isolation; growing community resilience and promoting mental and emotional health and wellbeing; and growing technological capability and resilience.
Who can apply?
Grants are available to churches and Christian charities (as long as they are part of Action for Churches Together in Scotland), and the amount the groups receive will depend upon the cost of their project and the level of need in their communities. For more information on the eligibility criteria for this programme, click here.
Notes on award amounts: In addition to funding capital projects, such as adaptation of buildings and the purchase of equipment, the programme will also fund project-related salaries and some other revenue costs (to the end of 2021), such as training of staff and/or volunteers.
There is no definitive closing date for this fund.
