Autumn 2019

We're delighted to launch our Autumn round of funding!

We have £15,000 available to support ideas, activities and projects that meet one of our three priority themes:

  • Clean and Caring Gorbals

  • Healthy and Happy Gorbals

  • Switched On Gorbals

These three themes have been developed as a result of our recent community research that highlighted people's concerns about the cleanliness and appearance of the area and evidenced a need for more activities that help boost physical and mental health and create opportunities to get involved in arts and culture.


In addition to these new themes, we've developed new eligibility criteria - certain things your application has to meet in order to be eligible for funding. These criteria have been developed because we want to make sure the Gorbals Ideas Fund has the biggest possible impact on our community for the people who live in our community. So, to be eligible your idea must: 


  • Increase involvement and inclusion of local people

We want to make sure more local people have the chance to be involved in community life.

  • Meet the needs of local people

We want to make sure the needs and wants of local people are reflected the work funded by the Gorbals Ideas Fund.

  • Support personal outcomes

We want to make sure the work funded the Gorbals Ideas Fund supports personal outcomes e.g. health and fitness, increased social networks, learning new skills.

  • Be delivered in the Gorbals

We want local people feel connected to the community and choose to stay in the Gorbals to take part in things they are interested in, so your activity must be delivered in the wider Gorbals area.

Who Can Apply

Anyone can apply to the Gorbals Ideas Fund. If you are applying as an individual or informal group you can apply for up to £500.00, if you are a constituted group, project or organisation you can apply for up to £3000.00.

Closing Date for Applications

The closing date for applications is Friday 1 November 2019, and you must be available to attend our Community Voting Event on Saturday 30 November 2019.
