The BBFF is funded by Hub Community Foundation (HCF) and managed by Inspiring Scotland.

About the Building Brighter Futures Fund

HCF is committed to helping Scotland’s communities to grow and flourish through collaborative community engagement. Hub Community Foundation identified training and employability opportunities for disadvantaged young people as the initial area of focus for grant giving and support and appointed Inspiring Scotland to manage the Building Brighter Futures Fund (BBFF) in December 2017.

Building Brighter Futures Fund will distribute up to £300,000 in total per annum over three years to selected organisations which support young people, aged 12 to 21, into employment, education or training.

Funding awards, will range from £20,000 to £60,000 per annum over three years, and will be subject to ongoing monitoring, reporting and review. Inspiring Scotland will work with the portfolio of successful organisations to ensure funding is used in the most cost-effective and impactful way.

Successful organisations which meet the aims and the criteria of the fund will be selected by HCF, with support from Inspiring Scotland.

This fund is now closed for applications. The application deadline date was 5pm on 16th March 2018
