Corra Foundation, in collaboration with the National Lottery Community Fund, Comic Relief, The Gannochy Trust and William Grant Foundation committed £425,000 to the development of The Listening Fund within Scotland, informed by key learning from the Listening Fund in England.
The fund in Scotland aims to invest in organisational capacity to ensure charities can listen and respond to the needs and experiences of children and young people. The fund will support charities to ensure children and young people can enjoy their rights to be heard, listened to and involved in decisions that affect their lives. During the two- year project, the Listening Fund is being evaluated by the centre for Youth Impact. Their findings will be shared widely to encourage the sector to learn from the programme and reflect on how the sector works, whose voices are heard, and where the power lies.
