Your burning questions

Every month our dedicated BIG information line can receive up to 700 enquiries from both new and existing customers. With our team on hand to offer advice and support to applicants before they apply the queries are diverse and cover all of BIG’s funding programmes in Scotland.

Here we answer three of this month’s burning questions.

Does Investing in Ideas have to lead onto an Investing in Communities application?

No, it doesn’t have to. Investing in Ideas enables organisations to test out a new idea or a new way of working. It therefore might lead onto an Investing in Communities application but this is not a requirement.

We have been unsuccessful in applying to you. Do we have to wait a certain length before reapplying?

As long as the reason(s) your application was unsuccessful have been addressed, you can reapply at anytime. There are no time constraints.

Can our application to Young Start be for more than £50,000?

No. The maximum we can fund through our Young Start fund is £50,000 whether it is for one or two years. The total project cost can go up to £100,000 but the request to us cannot be for more than £50,000.

Remember, if you have a burning question about our funding you can go to Ask BIG where we give you the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Alternatively if you can’t find your answer at Ask BIG you can call us on 0300 123 7110.
