Aspiring Communities Fund: application form and guidance

Application form and guidance notes for the Aspiring Communities Fund, which is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF).

The Aspiring Communities Fund is now closed to applications.

Our two-year, £18.9 million Aspiring Communities Fund is intended to help community bodies and third sector organisations in Scotland's most deprived communities to develop and deliver long-term local solutions that:

  • address local priorities and needs
  • increase social participation
  • build on the resources of local communities to reduce poverty

The Fund supports new or enhanced activity only, and cannot be used for activities previously or currently funded under any other ESF funding programmes.
