Today we opened a new £20 million fund from the Scottish Government focusing on improving the future for all Scotland’s children. The new Third Sector Early Intervention Fund (TSEIF) will be managed by Big Fund (the non-Lottery arm of the Big Lottery Fund) and will run for two years.
The aim of the fund is to focus on prevention and early intervention particularly but not exclusively around early years and to look for new ways to undertake this vital work. The TSEIF will support organisations which can improve policy and practice nationally, it will fund organisations delivering services and it will encourage creative and innovative approaches for preventative work from organisations working directly with children and young people, and the families and communities that support them.
If you are interested in the TSEIF but were unable to attend any of the info sessions in Glasgow then BIG staff are holding a webinar (online interactive seminar) on Thursday 20th December. The system is user friendly (there will be brief instructions on how to interact at the start of the session) and requires only broadband and either mic and speakers/telephone.
Please note space is limited.
