Deadline: 20 August 2021 at 12pm
All Scotland

The #ShiftThePower fund is now open to support organisations with passionate people to make meaningful change in their communities. The fund is now open to grassroots organisations and charities with an income of £400,000 or less whose work fits one of two strategic themes:

• Gender Justice – contributing to gender equality by reducing violence and discrimination based on gender and sexuality alongside increased opportunity, empowerment, and understanding for women, girls, and LGBTQI+ community.

• A Safe Place to Be – supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes in order to live safely. This includes enabling people who have faced or are facing homelessness to resolve their situation and get support as well as supporting those who have been forced from their homes to build a new life, free from conflict, persecution, or trafficking. Groups to be supported are those affected by homelessness, including refugees and asylum seekers.

Corra Foundation is committed to funding organisations that #ShiftThePower to communities and those with lived experience and recognise that application forms and assessment processes can present barriers in accessibility. If you feel that you would benefit from additional support – for example by completing this form in a different language, or accessing the form in a different format – please get in touch with them to arrange this at or by calling 0131 444 4020.

How much can you apply for?
Up to a maximum of £30,000 spread across up to two years. Funding must be fully spent by end of October 2023.
