Correction: Please note this article has been corrected since initial publication. We had said that the Social Innovation Fund was newly launched, however this is not the case. To clarify, a new round of funding for the scheme has been launched for Highlands & Islands. 

A round of funding for the Social Innovation Fund for Highlands & Islands has been launched.

The Social Innovation Fund enables social economy organisations to work in collaboration with research institutions, the public and private sector to develop, test and scale up new ideas and solutions to tackle poverty and disadvantage.

The new round of funding for Highlands & Islands will close at 12 noon on 17 December 2018.

More information and guidance can be found on the Scottish Government website.
