Gateway to Resilient Scotland
The Scottish Government’s policy shift towards community led regeneration was widely welcomed but the lack of subsequent investment in delivery has been a disappointment. On the plus side, the Lottery established a new £15m investment fund (mix of loan and grant) specifically to target locally led regeneration. For the past year, the Alliance has been working with Scotland’s newest funder – Resilient Scotland – on the details of this programme. Two key launch events are coming up.
Resilient’s Social Investment events
Resilient Scotland is committed to working across the 13 eligible JESSICA local authority areas* over the next three years. In each area there will be a Resilient Social Investment event. The first events will be held in September, in Edinburgh and Dundee.
Following these events, interested parties will be invited to complete an Expression of Interest form outlining their investment proposal. If your investment has potential, the Resilient team will work with you to put together a suitable investment package.
The first of these events will be held in Dundee and Edinburgh at the beginning of September, details below
Tuesday 3 September, Tayside Deaf Hub, Dundee, 18.00 – 20.00
Book your place for Dundee here
Thursday 5 September, Out of the Blue, Edinburgh 18.00 – 20.00
