Funding opportunity for projects in and around Edinburgh

The Russell Investments Fund is keen to support charities and community groups based and operating in Edinburgh and within 30 miles of the city

The aim of the fund is to support registered charities and constituted community projects (that are responsive to local issues) with a focus on:

      · Financial literacy - for adults as well as children and young people;
      · Children & Young People;
      · Further Education – working with people (all age groups) on ‘soft skills’ / confidence building to help individuals move on into further education.
The Fund is part of Foundation Scotland’s Express Grants programme: applicants can apply for up to £2,000 and will know within 8 weeks if they are successful or unsuccessful.  Full information on eligibility and how to make an application is available at their website.
