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.

We are currently assessing Expressions of Interest in the new Early Relationships Fund (ERF). Shortlisted applicants will be invited to complete a full proposal in the coming months. Please note: the ERF is now closed for applications.

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.
