Stand Up Small Grants Scheme

The Stand Up Small Grants Scheme has been established to support local volunteer led groups or units to run a project or activity that tackles sectarianism or hate behaviours and is open for applications.

What will the scheme fund?

The fund aims to help combat sectarianism and hate behaviours, and increase understanding within communities by supporting existing local youth groups to meet the costs (or part of the costs) of a particular project or programme tackling sectarianism or hate behaviours (up to £1,000). We will fund a range of projects from one-off awareness raising events to a longer-term programme of activities.

Who can apply?

The small grants scheme is being managed by a partnership of six national, volunteer-led youth organisations; The Scout Association, Girlguiding Scotland, Boys Brigade, The Girls' Brigade in Scotland, Boys' and Girls' Clubs Scotland and Youth Scotland.
Local units or youth groups which meet all the following criteria can apply:

  • Have members which include young people aged 10 or over,
  • Based in Scotland, and
  • A member of one of the six partnership organisations listed above.

When should we apply?

The application deadlines are 17 June 2016 and 9 September 2016.
