Grants plus
As part of our support for charities based or working in Perth and Kinross, we offer a range of free capacity building activities.

These are developed in response to what we have learnt from listening and talking with charities.  Our recent work on #BeConnected, a series of conversations with charities in Perth and Kinross helped us to design our current grants plus programme.

Aims of grants plus

Through our work on grants plus, we aim to support charities with developing sustainability; enable charities in building capability; encourage innovation and enterprise; be a more impactful and responsive funder for the sector; and build relationships and collaboration in Perth and Kinross.  Most of our grants plus activities are delivered in partnership with specialist providers.

Check out our #CharityStory about a recent Grants Plus initiative delivered for Perth based charity Kythe.

We have also been working on a collaborative project called #BeConnected, bringing together charity partners to discuss local needs and strategies for delivering community projects. Take a look at our report to see what we delivered.
