TRINKIE Meeting

  You are welcome to attend this meeting on Wednesday 22nd August at 7pm.  We are hoping to establish a new group willing to oversee the continuation of the TRINKIE as it has been badly damaged in recent years and is in need of repairs, maintenance and investment to save it from further deterioration.  

Promote your Good Work

Dear members,

We are all probably guilty of not highlighting all the good work our groups do within the voluntary sector in Caithness on a daily basis.  Here at CVG we have our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts and would be delighted to help you promote your organisation.

Simply send us a photo or two and a short note of what you have been up to and we can help showcase what you have been doing. Even better if you are looking for help of any kind let us know and add contact details and we can include that appeal in the post. 

Email your good news stories to volunteering@cvg.org.uk.

Any questions email me at allan@cvg.org.uk.

Small fund for Scotlands Historic Environment

Historic Environment Scotland – Organisation Support Fund | £4,000 | 30 September 2018

Providing financial support to organisations responsible for the operation, management or safeguarding of historic environment assets is a vital part of our wider efforts to safeguard Scotland’s historic environment and promote its understanding and enjoyment.

The Organisational Support Fund can provide financial support to organisations responsible for the operation, management or safeguarding of historic environment assets to assist in the delivery of defined projects/activities and/or to provide resilience funding.

Grant funding for organisations experiencing financial or organisational difficulties. Examples of the challenges that this funding could assist in addressing include:

  • Closing short term financial deficits;
  • Property, plant or equipment required to ensure that public access or engagement with the historic environment can continue in the long-term;
  • Equipment required to pursue identified and quantified business development opportunities; and
  • Addressing organisational capacity issues to respond to existing challenges or new opportunities.

Resilience funding is time limited and we would expect grantees to address the underlying issues that created the need for resilience funding. As with the Project/Activity funding, we would also expect it to relate to HES’s grant outcomes.
