The Scottish Refugee Council - Reaching New Scots Fund
The Scottish Refugee Council's Reaching New Scots Fund is available for projects that help people seeking safety feel more at home in Scotland. Your project must do at least one of the following:
Raise awareness of services for New Scots
Remove barriers that prevent New Scots from accessing services
Build capacity for New Scots to access services
The Reaching New Scots Fund is designed and managed by people from refugee backgrounds in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund. The project aims to create a fairer and more accessible approach to funding, making it easier for refugee-led community groups to successfully apply for grants.
Who can apply
This funding opportunity is open to groups and organisations across Scotland that are run by New Scots or offer support to refugees and people seeking asylum.
Organisations must have an average annual income of less than £250,000.
