  • Covid-19 Residential Outdoor Education Centre Recovery Fund

    Created: 08/03/2022

    In response to the continued impact of COVID-19 on residential outdoor education centres, The Scottish Government has announced a further investment of £2 million for a Covid-19 Residential Outdoor Education Centre Recovery Fund for 2022. The fund will provide financial support in the form of of grants and/or loans to residential outdoor education centres that have been affected by restrictions.

    The funding aims to keep outdoor centres in business – allowing them to continue to benefit current and future generations of learners – and allow centre staff to support outdoor learning in schools and other formal education settings where appropriate.

    The fund can support:

    • Essential non-staff running costs
    • Staff costs integral to the continued operation of the centre as long as these costs cannot be met by other income streams (excluding national insurance and pension contributions)

    Who can apply?

    Third and private sector centres that routinely provided curricular relevant, residential outdoor learning opportunities for young people (aged 3-18) before March 2020, and that can demonstrate a negative financial impact as a result of a loss of residential activity since the emergence of the current pandemic.

    How to apply?

    Application form and guidance are available on the YouthLink website.

    When to apply?

    The deadline is 17:00 on 16 March 2022.
