There are many changes coming to Cattanach in 2020: a new grant management system, a co-productive review of our funding criteria and processes with our Learning Partner Children in Scotland, a revamped evaluation system, Trustee and Associate recruitment, and much more!

This is quite a bit of change in a short time and the team and Trustees feel we need to focus on getting it right to make sure we achieve maximum benefit in all we do for our grantees, the early years world, and especially very young children and their families.

Trustees therefore decided, regretfully, that we will put a pause on new grants for Q2 (May) 2020. The next open funding round will be Q3 (September) 2020. Our team will be in touch with those who have already expressed an interest in submitting a proposal for Q2.

Watch out for further updates on all the exciting things coming to Cattanach in 2020 on this website!
