PLEASE NOTE As our Wee Grants fund offers small amounts of funding for grassroots groups, with a light-touch application and assessment process, we are able to fund some projects here which we would not consider supporting through our other Funds. This includes, for example, activities focused on wellbeing for groups of people we know are more likely to experience poverty and/or trauma. For our larger awards, we look for applicants to clearly demonstrate how their work seeks to address poverty and/or trauma, in line with our funding strategy. All awardees listed below have, however, shown that their work fits with one of our funding themes and may be aimed at one of our priority beneficiary groups.
