The Scottish Government’s Regeneration Unit will shortly be holding a number of webinar sessions for interested stakeholders and prospective applicants to support the pre-launch activity for the next round of the Investing in Communities Fund (ICF), which is currently anticipated to open for new applications in spring next year.
The fund will support community anchor organisations based in the places they serve by delivering projects and services across the following four areas for action in our most disadvantaged and fragile communities across Scotland:
• tackling poverty and inequality;
• sustaining place-based approaches;
• community-led regeneration;
• ensuring a just transition to net zero.
The webinars will provide an overview of the fund’s aims, eligibility criteria and the application process. The webinars will also include time for Q&A. This approach is also intended to provide time for interested organisations to develop quality collaborative place based proposals in conjunction with local partner organisations.
The webinars will last one hour and are planned for 1030-1130 on Tuesday 30 November 2021, and 1400-1500 on Wednesday 8 December 2021.
Joining instructions and the registration process will be circulated in due course. Information will also be updated on the Scottish Government webpage, and a link to the presentation will be added afterwards for anyone unable to attend.
