The purpose of the fund is to support the recovery and resilience of survivors by enhancing capacity and capability of third sector and community-based organisations who provide dedicated support.
Funded by Scottish Government and supported by Inspiring Scotland, this ¬£10m fund over 4 years aims to support all survivors in having equal access to services in Scotland. It will also address waiting lists for support, encourage collaboration and innovation amongst third sector providers, and build integration with statutory services.
In conjunction with Scottish Government, Inspiring Scotland wish to continue to support survivors of childhood abuse, particularly with the impact of the current COVID-19 issue.
For survivors of all forms of abuse, staying at home and with added pressure on statutory services, more people are looking for support from third sector organisations. To help connect people to the right services, we have created a digital directory of organisations providing support to survivors in Scotland at this time.DOWNLOAD HERE
