Funding News

Kype Muir Community Fund

Despite Strathaven and Glassford Community Council being unable to meet due to COVID-19, its funding packages remain open for applications.

The Kype Muir Community Fund has been operational throughout and we still welcome applications. (See below for details). In addition to providing funding for local groups, the Kype Muir Fund has donated £3500 to help support the ‘Working together for Avondale’ Community Support group that has been coordinating support from a variety of local groups and organisations throughout the health emergency.

With the Kype Muir Windfarm now operational and the Kype Muir Community Fund live since June 26th 2019, we welcome applications for eligible projects.  We would suggest that in advance of an application you discuss the project with a member of the Community council.  Applications will be reviewed against the Community Consultation Summary Document and Action Plan.  Click here to download a copy.   The process starts with completion of an ‘Expression of Interest Form’.  This can be downloaded  by clicking this link: Kype-Muir-Expression-of-Interest-Form.
