Our new strategy for 2020-2030 sharpens our focus on helping to improve the lives of people and communities with experience of poverty, trauma or both.
Our focus is on improving the lives of people and communities experiencing poverty and trauma. We'll be building on and applying our understanding of particular areas in the course of our strategy.
Over the next ten years, we'll provide around £200 million in funding to third sector organisations that help people and communities in Scotland living with poverty and trauma. Applications now open!
As well as funding others, our own projects and pieces of work reflect our aim to help to improve the lives of people and communities in Scotland experiencing poverty and trauma.
