Port of Aberdeen has announced a £30,000 fund to support local community groups and charities in 2022.
The funding will be available to groups in the areas close to the port, including Torry, Balnagask, Altens, Tullos and Cove.
The 2022 funding programme will be bolstered by donations of time, resources, and equipment from the Port of Aberdeen.
“As a Trust Port operating in the heart of the city, we have a vested, proactive interest in ensuring our local communities can prosper and we look forward to partnering with local groups this year, so that children and adults can prosper.”
Since its establishment in 2014, the port’s community action programme has donated £600,000 to nearly 50 community groups and charities across Aberdeen. Its recent beneficiaries have included Greyhope Bay, Cultivate Aberdeen’s St. Fittick’s Edible Garden, Big Noise Torry, the Fittie Community Development Trust and the Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre, Dee View Court.
“It’s always fantastic to hear when funding has been made available to support the vital work of third sector and community organisations in the city. As the third sector interface for Aberdeen, we see day to day how important funding is, and it’s most welcome to learn that more money has been made available through the supPORT-all scheme.”
Applications for funding open on Wednesday 2 February and close on Wednesday 2 March. Recipients will be announced shortly thereafter.
