Could Scotwest help make a difference in your community?

At Scotwest, we are committed to improving the lives of our Members and to help improve our communities.

The Scotwest Community Awards offers grants of up to £2000 to organisations to fund specific events or projects as part of the work they do in their local communities either in improving the local environment or providing support and opportunities to local people.

Nominations can be made by Scotwest Members using the form below for any group, charity or individual looking for funding to help with a specific project, from building work to purchasing equipment or funding events or trips. Applications for funding for general running costs or to  form part of a larger fund will not be accepted. You can find advice on completing funding applications here.

Applications will be considered on a quarterly basis from a panel made up of Scotwest staff meeting in December, March, June and September. All applicants will be advised of the outcome of their applications.
