Scotch Whisky Action Fund

Next Application Deadline: 5.00pm on 30 June 2017

The Scotch Whisky industry is and has been involved for many years in a range of initiatives to promote responsible attitudes to alcohol and tackle alcohol-related harm. The establishment of this fund by the Scotch Whisky Association is a further development of that commitment.

Twenty two local initiatives fighting alcohol misuse in Scotland have been awarded funding from the Scotch Whisky Action Fund since the £500,000 fund was set up in December 2013. The aim of the fund is to invest in groups and organisations that wish to reduce the impact of alcohol-related harm in Scotland’s communities.

Groups and organisations can apply for grant funding of up to £25 000

Grants of between £10 001 and £25 000 are available to organisations with no requirement of match funding.

  • Working with people on low incomes, at risk from poverty or with problems finding accommodation.
