Creetown Initiative has been supporting Stranraer Development Trust to set up the Stranraer Resilience Fund. This is an opportunity for local community groups and organisations to apply for funds to alleviate the effects of welfare reform in disadvantaged communities in Stranraer. It is being supported by the Scottish Government via Development Trust Association Scotland. Stranraer Development Trust is administering the fund on their behalf.
Local community organisations can apply for a Stranraer Resilience Fund grant of between £500 and £2,000. The process is simple and quick.
Projects must have a focus on one or more of these specific themes:
Young people in need
Support for vulnerable groups
Eating healthy on a budget
Care for carers
Stranraer Development Trust are asking for interested groups to email firstname.lastname@example.org for a form and further information. We have been pleased to be able to support Stranraer Development Trust to develop this opportunity.
