We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £12,000 in order for us to start the Stranraer Resilience Fund. This fund will be used to make small grants to local community groups who are working with people in hardship. The funding has come from the Scottish Government through the Development Trust Association Scotland (DTAS) and also a Scottish Charitable Trust who wish to remain anonymous but heard about our application and wanted to contribute towards the fund.
We will announce the full criteria and details and invite community groups to apply in January 2017. Watch this space.
