Third Sector Resilience Fund (TRSF)

Applications are now open for the TRSF 

Information provided by West Dunbartonshire Council for Voluntary Sector on 25 March 2020

Part of a £350m support package by the Scottish Government for the sector in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Third Sector Resilience Fund will support organisations across the third sector who are at risk of closure due to a sharp decrease in income or that are unable to deliver their services directly as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. The fund’s primary intention is to help these organisations to stabilise and manage cashflows over this difficult period.

The TSRF is delivered by Firstport, Social Investment Scotland and Corra Foundation and it offers charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises grants of £5,000-£100,000. In addition there will be up to a further £5m available in fully flexible, 0% interest loans starting at £50,000.

The Third Sector Resilience Fund is designed for charities, voluntary organisations, social enterprises and other third sector organisations that already deliver services and products but that find themselves in financial difficulties directly as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, as opposed to pre-existing financial difficulties.
