Scottish Government – Cash-First Fund

Closing Date: 01/09/2023

Grants are available for public sector and third sector organisations across Scotland to develop partnerships and deliver collaborative work to improve urgent local access to cash in a crisis and tackle food insecurity.

This fund aims to improve urgent local access to cash in a crisis to help maintain dignity for those supported and reduce the need for emergency food parcels by:

  • Providing funding for local collaboration and tests of change.
  • Providing practical assistance through tailored advice and peer support.
  • Sharing good practice within and beyond the participating areas.
  • Independently evaluating the Programme to inform future decisions.

The fund will develop a cash-first response, wherein funding will support people experiencing hardship to improve access to emergency financial assistance as the first port of call in a crisis.
