Third Sector Resilience Fund
Applications are now open for the Third Sector Resilience Fund (TSRF).
This fund is part of a £350m support package by the Scottish Government for the sector in response to COVID-19. The TSRF will support organisations across the third sector who are at risk of closure due to the sharp decrease in income or that are unable to deliver their services directly as a result of COVID-19. The fund's primary intention is to help these organisations to stabilise and manage cash-flows over this difficult period.
The TSRF is delivered by Firstport, Social Investment Scotland and Corra Foundation. It offers charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises grants of £5k-£100k. There will be up to a futher £5m available in fully flexible, zero per cent interest loans starting at £50k.
For more information and to apply, visit SCVO's Coronavirus Third Sector Information Hub which has information on funding for voluntary sector organisations during COVID-19.
Other funding will become available to support third sector organisations over the coming weeks.
