Funding Written Answer, 03/05/13 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Neil Bibby's (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government whether funding for strategic funding partnerships is new money; whether successful applicants to the Third Sector Early Intervention Fund will be eligible to apply for funding via strategic funding partnerships; whether funding via strategic funding partnerships will place restrictions on applications for or awards under other (a) government or (b) non-government funding streams; and what steps it will take to ensure that applicants to the Third Sector Early Intervention Fund and organisations eligible for funding via strategic funding partnerships are informed about the process and any developments.

The Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell, replied that this is additional funding for the third sector.

The Third Sector Early Intervention Fund (TSEIF) and Strategic Funding Partnerships are designed to provide a coherent package of support to deliver key outcomes for children, young people and the families and communities who support them across Scotland. In order to support as many organisations in the third sector as possible, organisations which successfully applied to the TSEIF have not been approached about Strategic Funding Partnerships.

The Minister for Children and Young People announced the outcomes of both the Third Sector Early Intervention Fund and Strategic Funding Partnerships on 18 April 2013.
