Coimhearsnachd Bharraidh agus Bhatarsaidh Ltd (Barra & Vatersay Limited) has entered into a partnership with the national grant-making charity Foundation Scotland.

The partnership enables Foundation Scotland to take over the administration of the Spagan Fund, which disburses funds from the Barra Community Turbine to local community-led groups.

In addition to administering the Spagan Fund, which is now open for applications on a rolling basis, Foundation Scotland will draft a Fund Strategy setting out fresh aims and criteria for the fund.

It is also planned to establish an independent Community Panel to decide on future Spagan funding.

Further information and application submissions can be obtained from the Foundation Scotland website.
