Drugs Services Support
Local Support Fund – Micro Grants
The numbers of drug-related deaths in Scotland are too high. These deaths are tragic and avoidable and reducing them is a priority for all of us. The Scottish Government is now leading a national mission to improve lives, backed by significant additional resources. There remains a lot of hard work ahead, but with extra investment in essential services, the work we do will be more secure and signals a determination to make change and no longer to fail those who need and deserve our help.
About the fund
The Local Support Fund – Micro Grants, is focused on small community-based groups which deliver frontline services to support people who use or used drugs, people in recovery and families affected by someone else’s drug use. This vital support is often delivered with very limited funding which means that small groups can be stretched to their limits. In some cases, the pandemic will have put more of a strain on finances, making it even harder to provide support for people and families when they most need it. This fund is designed to help these groups by providing grants which will offer some financial security for planning and delivering support to improve the wellbeing of both people who use drugs and their families.
National Drug Mission Funds: Corra Foundation will be supporting the Scottish Government with their funding processes as part of the National Drug Mission. Although only the Local Support Fund Micro Grants is currently open, further information is available here.
