The Wellbeing Fund was established to support organisations across the third sector that are providing important services to people who are most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This forms part of a £350 million package from the Scottish Government.
Round 2 of the fund closed to applications at midday on 22 May 2020. If you applied under round 2 you will receive an acknowledgement that your application has been received and will hear back from us no later than June 5th 2020.
The round 2 criteria focused on
- Working with at risk groups with new needs which are not currently being met by existing services
- Providing vital wellbeing support on issues such as mental health, personal finances, employment, housing, food, physical health and home life.
- Immediate and emerging forms of support
