The Community & Third Sector Recovery Programme is a £25m Scottish Government funded programme aiming to support charities, community groups, social enterprises and voluntary organisations that are supporting people and communities through the shift from lockdown to recovery.

The Programme has two strands:

Adapt and Thrive – The programme aims to support organisational change. It offers tailored support and funding to develop a plan so third sector organisations can operate sustainably post-COVID. You can find more information about Adapt and Thrive on the SCVO website, and daily Information Webinars are also available.

Communities Recovery Fund -The fund aims to support the delivery of services in communities that were suspended or reduced because of COVID, or the creation of new services that tackle new challenges presented by COVID. More information about this fund will be available on the SCVO website on or before Friday 18 September.

Both strands will open for applications on Monday 21 September, and will each use an integrated system so, if required, a request can be made to both programmes using a single application form.
