Published: 22 June 2023

Shetland Charitable Trust (SCT) is inviting local charities to apply for a share of around £128,000 still available from its Main Grant Scheme for next year.

The vast bulk of the scheme’s £8.9m budget for 2024/25 is already allocated to charitable organisations in the form of provisional multi-year grants. These include the rural care centres, voluntary groups, Shetland Recreational Trust, Shetland Amenity Trust and Shetland Arts.

Around £128,000 still remains in the budget and is now being offered in a new application round running from 19 June to 21 August 2023 with the successful bidders receiving the funds from April next year. Applicants are invited to seek one-year funding.

To be eligible, organisations should have a turnover of more than £50,000 a year and be undertaking charitable activities in the fields of social care and welfare, arts and culture, heritage and the environment or sport and recreation.

SCT grants are aimed at improving the quality of life of everyone in Shetland with particular emphasis on reducing inequality and social exclusion.
