This programme is aimed at supporting and building the capacity of Scotland's smallest community and voluntary groups that make a vital difference to their communities and have an income of less than £25,000 per year. Groups can apply for grants of up to £1,000 which can be used for a wide range of costs or activities to help sustain and develop their work. Priority will be given to groups that work with health or disability issues; for the benefit of people protected under the 2010 Equality Act; with families and young people, and with older people.
