Scottish Investment Fund
We will establish the £30 million Scottish Investment Fund. The fund will support enterprise in the third sector through strategic investment in individual organisations in combination with both integral business support and management development. The funding will be provided through a mix of repayable and non-repayable investment. Assessment for this fund will be based on an organisation’s business plan. Substantial investments will be available to those organisations that can demonstrate that they can operate in an effective, enterprising and financially sustainable way.Over the three years of this action plan, we expect to invest in some 60-80 organisations.
