Funding Opportunities

Scottish Government Challenge Fund

The Scottish Government Challenge Fund will be open twice. A total of £1.2million will be available in 2018/19 (Round 1). A similar investment (tbc) will be available in 2019/20 (Round 2, which is likely to open in October 2019).

This fund provides an opportunity for Integrated Authorities (IAs) and/or Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) and their partners to bid for money to test or implement change. Applications are welcome from consortia. IAs or ADPs will act as lead organisation, and all applications (whether from individual organisations or IAs/ADPS) must be reviewed and signed off by IA or ADP chairs. Third sector partners are welcome to apply, either alone or as part of a consortia. We strongly recommend that consortia form as soon as possible to ensure a collective commitment and shared understanding of the proposal.

See this letter for full details.

Please note any expressions of interest for this funding should be discussed with Simon Raynor in the first instance.
