After a great response to our COVID-19 Adaptations Micro Grants, we’re delighted to announce that we’re now in the process of distributing just over £9,000 in investment to our successful applicants.
The COVID-19 Adaptations Micro Grants, funded by the Scottish Government Wellbeing Fund (administered by SCVO) and the Gannochy Trust, will be used to fulfil lots of small-but-essential projects, helping the sector to prepare for returning to in-person classes.
The money will be going towards upgraded Zoom subscriptions, website development, technical equipment, a pop-up event space, contactless payment software, developing an online filmmaking course, development time for facilitators, and much, much more. Of course, some of the money will also be going towards that all-important PPE!
We hope the money helps out with adaptations, and congratulations to our successful applicants. We look forward to hearing all about the projects in the coming weeks.
