The Aberdeenshire Community Resilience Fund is for community or resilience groups seeking funding to support people in the community who are staying at home, self-isolating, vulnerable and unable to access basic necessities such as food and medicines, as a result of the restrictions due to COVID-19. If the group applying is not constituted, they should affiliate with an existing constituted group, for example, a community council.
The fund is not designed to support other community groups who may be affected because they cannot raise funds or income as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. Groups in this situation should visit the SCVO website.

If approved, the funds will be awarded within 2 working days of the application being made.
The applications will be assessed by your local area managers office and funds will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
If you need assistance or are unable to submit online please contact your local area managers office.
