WHALE Arts has received £20,000 from Scottish Government Supporting Communities Fund to distribute to organisations, projects and community groups in Wester Hailes.
These will be small grants of up to £1500 (possibly £2000, depending on demand).
The grants have to be spent by the end of September 2020 (as this is when WHALE will need to report back to Scottish Government / National Lottery Community Fund).
If you receive funds they will require a paragraph or two from you by the end of September 2020 on how you used the money to improve lives during Covid-19 lockdown.
If you are from a residents group that does not have a bank account or a suitable way to make purchases online note this in Question 4 in the form below as WHALE can make purchases for smaller un-constituted groups if required.
To apply for an award please complete this online form by 5.00pm on Friday 5 June 2020.
If you have any questions please contact WHALE Arts’ Chief Executive Leah Black on firstname.lastname@example.org or give her a call on 07773 553 445.
