As a result of the income generated by our wind turbine, Varuna, we have four funds available for applications from people living in Coigach and from organisations operating in our community.
The four funds (including application forms and guidance notes) are:
CCDC Education and Training Bursaries Fund
The Fund is open for applications from any adults (aged 16+) of the community of Coigach who wish to develop their skills and who are undertaking courses delivered by accredited organisations and recognised training providers. This includes prospective and current students at colleges or universities, apprentices, and any adults wanting to undertake further training/ skills development.
Bursaries are for a maximum of £500.00 per applicant per financial year for those aged 16+ – but no more than £1,500.00 in any 5-year period.
CCDC Wellbeing Fund
This Fund is open to support individuals (aged 16+) living in Coigach to participate (including to perform) in a range of arts, cultural and natural heritage, leisure and recreational, and scientific events, non-certificated/informal lifelong learning courses and activities. Awards are for a maximum of £500.00 per applicant per financial year – but no more than £1,500.00 in any 5-year period.
CCDC Supporting Children and Young People Fund
This Fund is open to support children from birth to the time that they, as young people, exit secondary education. Note that this Fund is for individuals to enable them to access activities or obtain equipment that will support their development. Awards are for a maximum of £500.00 per applicant per financial year – but no more than £1,500.00 in any 5-year period.
CCDC Small Grant (up to £5,000) Fund for Organisations
This fund is open to organisations (voluntary bodies, school etc.) that want to apply for funding for a project which meets one of CCDC’s wide-ranging charitable objects (too many to list here) and which will benefit the community of Coigach.
