Community Chest

The Community Chest has been used to support a range of people and community groups develop and idea or deliver an activity in the Auchmuty area.

Community Groups and individuals can apply for funding of around £250 if you can show us that:

  • The activity will take place in the Our Place neighbourhood
  • There are at least four people involved
  • Everyone is prepared to contribute their time, energy and talents

Some of the things that we have funded are:

BIG Lunch – brought Auchmuty organisations together for lunch and raised money for charity.
