HEP Community Challenge Fund 2022-23

Community Engagement Challenge Fund

Utilising Scottish Government funding in support of No One Left Behind in the Highlands, HEP partners have agreed to run a one-off Community Engagement Challenge Fund in financial year 2022/23. 

The fund is open to Highland based, constituted community organisations to apply for funding of up to £10,000.  The purpose being to develop approaches within communities which identify residents who would benefit from employability support services, in particular, enabling engagement with:

  1. people in the community who wish to work but are currently not in employment or engaged with employability support; and/or
  2. people for whom disability is a significant employability barrier; and/or
  3. working parents seeking to up-skill and develop a career path

As this is a one-off programme, we are particularly keen to support innovative approaches that if successful, can potentially be supported longer term.

It is essential that you read the guidelines for this scheme before you complete the application form.
