Pockets and Prospects

Scottish Community Alliance

Pockets and Prospects (aka the Community Resilience Fund) supports community led action aimed at ameliorating the impacts of welfare reform in areas that are already suffering from significant economic disadvantage. The funding is provided on the basis that local people know best how to address these challenges and that relatively small amounts of money can have a big impact when spent well. The funding has been allocated in two ways : directly to community anchor organisations and through a number of network members of SCA in order to extend the reach of the funding.
