In common with many credit unions, Solway receives grant funding from our local Council. We receive support through the External Funding Unit of Dumfries & Galloway Council for which we are extremely grateful. These monies are used to help cover the cost of our administration.
Solway Credit Union and The Enterprise Ready Fund
We have recently been successful in being awarded a significant grant from the Enterprise Ready Fund for which we are very grateful. The funding has allowed us to make great progress with our Growth Project.
The Enterprise Ready Fund was a Scottish Government funded programme which distributed up to £6M from 2013 to 2015 to help maintain, develop and grow Scotland’s enterprising third sector.
The Fund provided grants to support the long-term development objectives of new, emerging and established enterprising third sector organisations in Scotland.
The Fund aimed to invest in those enterprising third sector organisations that demonstrate the greatest potential for sustainability and growth and for which a grant from the Fund will have the greatest impact in enabling them to move forward with their plans.
Priority was given to activities that contributed towards the Scottish Government’s Prevention and Welfare Reform agendas in addition to meeting the Fund outcomes.
Our Growth Project, with the benefit of this funding, has seen us add to our staffing and administration capacity, afford the specialist skills of a Marketing Officer, establish a Marketing budget, rebrand and enhance our corporate image, purchase capital equipment, software and furniture, provide staff with relevant training, and enhance our online offering through this website and the facilities it offers. We are now able to reach and help even more people with their finances.
