Funding

The second year of Aberdeenshire Council’s Coastal Communities Challenge Fund (CCCF) programme has been launched.  
 

New Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund launched.

The £15 million Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund aims to support adult community-based initiatives across Scotland.

Through the £2 million Island Communities Fund, 29 successful community groups and businesses across 23 islands have been awarded grants of up to £150,000 each.

More than £1 million of the Scottish Land Fund is being awarded to eight local community groups to help them take ownership of the land and buildings that matter to them.  

The idea for the trek – which is raising funds for Highlands-based rewilding charity Trees for Life – germinated three years ago while Michael was walking in the Scottish Highlands.
