Information on funding opportunities for Aberdeenshire Communities

This page offers information on accessing funding through Aberdeenshire Council and also signposts organisations to other funding schemes and helpful information. Whilst there are opportunities to apply for funding through the Council these resources are extremely limited, and the Council’s main aim is to direct organisations to other suitable sources of funding by means of advice from officers, and by accessing information through sources such as the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations website. The SVCO website is a rich and valuable resource to access for a varied range of further information to support people in managing and running organisations.

For further information please email for assistance. Alternatively you can write to us at Woodhill House, Westburn Road, Aberdeen, AB16 5GB..
