New Investing in Communities Fund opportunities for social enterprise

Posted: 13 December 2021, in News

Date for your diary – The SES webinar on the Investing in Communities Fund will take place on Wed 26 Jan at 11.30-12.15.

The Scottish Government continues to support various community-led regeneration programmes through the Empowering Communities Programme, which includes the following two targeted funds:

The Investing in Communities Fund (ICF) is a streamlined communities fund that is delivered as part of the Empowering Communities Programme. 

The fund reflects our commitment to investing in communities so that they can develop the resources and resilience to decide their own aspirations, priorities and solutions in response and supports our most disadvantaged or fragile communities to tackle poverty in all its forms on their own terms.

The fund also helps to meet our targets as set out in the child poverty delivery plan and to underpin the Place Principle by encouraging more joined up collaborative approaches to services and assets to achieve better outcomes for people and communities.

We look forward to letting you know more at the upcoming SES webinar!
