Community Development Fund

Posted on:

Can we help you, your business or your organisation?

Some of the most difficult challenges facing the Trust are to create jobs, increase economic and social activity and to raise the profile of the North Harris. The Trust recognises that making funds available to individuals, or groups based in, or operating in North Harris is one way in which we can help achieve these. The Community Development Fund has been set up for this purpose.

Applications for grants are welcomed from groups or individuals based in or working for the benefit of North Harris.

The Community Development Fund will meet four times a year, the meetings for 2017 are as follows:

17th March, 29th June, 28th September & 14th December

Directors and Staff of the Trust will be happy to discuss any aspect of an application informally. Applications will be considered by a group consisting of directors and at least one lay member of the Trust. Each application will be considered on its merits and whether its purpose matches the goals of the Trust.

A list of awards is published annually at the Trust A.G.M. To give you an idea of the projects that are funded,  the most recent awards are detailed in the document below. This shows over £70,000 of funding, injected into the local community.
