Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal - Community Benefits Portal
The Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal (ESES CRD) is a £1.3 billion Scottish and UK Government investment to accelerate growth, create new economic opportunities and meaningful new jobs that will help to reduce inequalities.
Funded by the Deal, this new website allows community groups and good causes to submit requests for “Community Benefits”.
Community Benefits are the method by which local communities and good causes are encouraged to receive additional social value from the supply chain of businesses delivering publicly funded contracts and developments.
Local charities, community groups and good causes can find out more and submit specific community benefit requests.
Support is also available to both City Region Deal suppliers and all other businesses within the region to deliver community benefits and undertake positive actions within the communities they serve.
