Coigach Community Development Company (CCDC) has secured funding from the Scottish Government, via Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), to support the community of Coigach during the COVID-19 crisis, from the Supporting Communities Fund.
We are therefore able to support people in the communities in various ways:
- volunteer expenses
- some business expenses eg shop deliveries and safe shopping (for delivery/packaging/hygiene costs)
- cloth mask packs
- purchase of essential supplies and/or equipment
- delivering meals to vulnerable people
- supporting families
CCDC’s Crisis Fund is also still available – see previous post for details and application process.
And CCDC’s Community Funds is still open for applications should you wish to sign-up for an online course, or invest in something to improve your well-being. Again, please get in touch to ask!
Please get in touch for further information or if there is anything in particular you would like help with – we’d welcome suggestions! For instance, would you welcome tech help to get online, or zoom your family? Or educational/creative resources for the kids?
