Since relaunching earlier in 2020, Corra has committed almost £1 million through Henry Duncan Grants to over 60 charities working across Scotland to support families in the grip of poverty.
The funding supports grassroots charities to reach out to families in different ways, something that’s been particularly crucial over the past few months. Supported organisations have included Amina who work to amplify the voices of Black, Asian and minority ethnic women, and Moray School Bank that supports families and young people by providing warm winter clothes and school uniforms.

Henry Duncan Grants was relaunched as part of Corra’s ten-year strategy. Corra heard from charities that they wanted more trust and time so that they could make a real difference for the people they work alongside. In response, the main changes to Henry Duncan Grants included greater flexibility with grants unrestricted where possible, a rolling programme of micro grants as well as offering multi-year grants up to five years. The variety of themes each year will see Corra supporting of broad range of organisations through Henry Duncan Grants.
The 2021 theme will be improving mental health and wellbeing. Further information on the theme guidelines and funding round dates will be made available in due course. You can read more about Henry Duncan Grants here: https://www.corra.scot/grants/henry-duncan-grants/
