Spirit of Caithness new fund for older people’s activities

FOUNDATION Scotland has secured an additional £15,000 which will be distributed through the Spirit of Caithness: A Fourteen Community panel.

The money will be spent on projects working with older people to reduce isolation and increase involvement in the community in Caithness. It will be available for only a short time, so the panel would urge anyone who might benefit from this funding to act quickly.

Constituted groups can apply for up to £2000 and individuals or small unconstituted groups can apply for up to £500. Grant application forms are available to download from Foundation Scotland’s website: www.foundationscotland.org.uk/programmes/spiritofcaithness
