Swinney encourages funding applications

Publised date : 11 Apr 2019

Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, has today encouraged local organisations, charities and community groups to apply for funding from SSE’s Perth and Kinross Sustainable Development Fund.

The fund, which is making £240,000 available, aims to supportive “transformative” projects that increase opportunities for education and employment, build resilience, protect vulnerable residents and stimulate meaningful community regeneration.

Commenting, Mr Swinney said: 

“SSE’s Perth and Kinross Sustainable Development Fund is an excellent opportunity for local groups to obtain significant funding.

“The money on offer will directly benefit communities across Perthshire, and I would therefore encourage any eligible organisations within my constituency to complete an application form.

“I would like to put on record my thanks to SSE for their financial commitment to this fund, and for their continued support of worthwhile causes across the region.”

The deadline for applications to be received is 12 Noon on 25 July 2019. Fund guidelines and an application form are attached to this email or are available at:
