Funding Written Answer, 02/06/14 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Neil Findlay's (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government what funding is available for (a) youth voluntary organisations and (b)charities in (i) sport, (ii) creative industries and (iii) music.

The Scottish Government's Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop, replied that there are a range of different funding avenues available to support youth voluntary organisations and charities.

Individual funds and funders do not ring-fence amounts for particular types of applicants, and are more focussed on outcomes. As well as investing strategically through their work with a variety of partners, Creative Scotland and sportscotland administer funding programmes on behalf of Scottish Ministers which are available to charitable trusts, youth and voluntary organisations. Enterprising third sector organisations are able to apply to the Enterprise Ready Fund.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 2 June 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
