Following a consultation process with our grantees and the wider sector, we have adopted a new strategy, increasing our investment in the early years in Scotland and adapting our grantmaking along the way. This means there will be changes to our current grant programmes and therefore our main grants programme is no longer accepting new proposals.

Current grants are unaffected by these changes (including recently awarded grants). Future payments will be made as scheduled in accordance with our funding terms and conditions.

In January 2024, we held webinars to update our grantees and partners on Cattanach’s new strategy and direction of travel for funding in 2024 and beyond. You can watch the recording of the presentation delivered by Cattanach Chief Executive, Dr. Sophie Flemig, and Fund Programmes Manager, Ellie Sandercock, below.

A new Early Relationships Fund will open for Expressions of Interest in spring 2024. We will be updating the Funding section of our website with further details in the coming weeks.

Q&A Session Summary

Following the presentation, participants were invited to share questions and comments. We have compiled a summary of these questions and our answers in a document below.
