We held a application workshop last month, in Glasgow’s excellent WestGAP. We supported the members of eight scotland-based groups with their application to our current funding round.
There were members of DPAC Glasgow, Anti-Capitalist Queers, Mixed Race Families Scotland, Planning Democracy, and several other organisations, who were bringing excellent applications to talk about. They all seemed to benefit from the workshop, and we look forward to reading and scoring their applications.
One very exciting proposal for Scotland a small devolved funding process. £1000 has been released from the national fund to support a pilot project, created and led by our Scotland-based members. There was not much time to consider this project, but plenty of enthusiasm for it.
We also talked about how to increase our Scotland membership, and raise awareness of the Edge Fund, and the possibilities of a ‘Scotland Branch’.
We hope to continue developing the ‘Scotland Branch’ and devolved funding, early next year. Watch this space!
