We are ambitious to deliver significant change to the lives of Scotland’s most vulnerable people so each of our funds is tackling a different area of social need.
We have a number of funds running concurrently, each has a very clear focus and our robust performance management means we are able to demonstrate the difference they are making. Individual funds will run for a set time period, so we will have a rolling programme of different funds starting as others reach their natural end point.
Our first fund, 14:19 Fund, established in 2008, is performing well in supporting young Scots to make a successful transition from school into education, training and employment.
Go2Play, builds on the success of the two year Go Play prgoramme, invests in a small portfolio of play ventures to support the expansion of play rangers.
Our third fund, Early Years Early Action is supporting Scotland’s most vulnerable children and their families to help ensure they get the best start in life.
Link Up is piloting a new approach asset based approach to supporting communities, by working 10 of Scotland’s most disadvantaged communities to come together, build new relationships and start to address the challenges they face.
