Argyll and Bute Council Third Sector Grants are aimed at supporting communities and vulnerable people, and helping to kick start new projects and events.  

The funding is available to organisations to allow them to deliver the services and/or projects that meet the six objectives detailed in the Single Outcome Agreement.

In 2014, nearly £140,000 was awarded to groups and organisations working to improve community life at a local level; and a further £78,000 to organisations providing a service Argyll and Bute wide. 

Find out more about successful applicants in 2014.

In addition to providing support on the Third Sector Grant application and process, the Council’s Community Development Team can assist third sector organisations with developing new projects, exploring income generation opportunities, identifying other sources of funding, community engagement and evaluation techniques.
