Scotch Whisky Action Fund 2018
The Fund is looking to support and develop a range of projects/initiatives which will deliver targeted interventions designed to tackle alcohol-related harms across three themes:
Young people (aged under 18)
Awards of up to £25,000 for a one year period can be made through this Fund. There are two categories of award as follows:
Seedcorn funding- Awards made under this category could fund new initiatives and test out innovative approaches designed to reduce alcohol-related harm. Awards could also be used to fund existing smaller scale projects that are seeking to expand or develop their services. You must tell us how you plan to evaluate your project if seeking an award under this category. Please note that whilst you can apply for up to £25,000 under this strand, an award of this level would only be granted in exceptional circumstances. In practice, we would expect to make awards in the region of £10,000 for new or innovative projects.
Growth and Development- Awards made under this category could fund projects that are seeking to consolidate and build on emerging, successful practice in relation to the reduction of alcohol-related harm. You must be able to provide evidence of any evaluation of your work to date. We will look for evidence that the project is needed and that the approach taken has proven to be effective.
For 2018, the closing date for the receipt of applications will be 29 June 2018 with applications being considered by the Awards Panel in September 2018.
