£1.5M for Community Choices Fund

Communities from Arbroath to Ullapool will share £1.5 million to increase the numbers of people involved in making decisions about investment in their local areas. A total of 33 organisations from across Scotland were successful in securing Community Choices Funding in 2017/18 to host events and find new ways to encourage participation in financial decision making.
 
The fund, which targets deprived communities, received 91 applications with 16 successful community organisations and 17 successful councils. The projects include:

• The Carnhill Development Trust in Glasgow will use £39,590 to work with One Parent Families Scotland in Riddie and Carnhill to help reduce the impact of school holidays on family poverty and food insecurity.

• Midlothian Council will also work with schools and parents to tackle poverty, using its award of £30,000 to support families in Mayfield, Woodburn and Gorebridge cover the cost of the school day.

• The joint community councils of Moray will work with people of all ages to improve general health and wellbeing in the area using £66,500
• Dundee City Council has secured £80,000 to involve communities from across the city in infrastructure projects.
