Beatrice Partnership Fund

The Beatrice fund will be worth a total of £6m, split between Highland (£4m) and Moray (£2m). These will be split equally between a Partnership fund in each area and a local fund.

The Partnership fund for Highland will cover the communities on the east coast of Caithness and Sutherland. In Moray, it will include all coastal communities and the four local communities, namely Buckie and District, Strathisla, Lennox and Keith.

Partnership Fund Criteria

The criteria for the Partnership fund is:

  • Creating opportunities
    Create or enhance opportunities for education and employment through activities focused on improving an individual’s chances of entering the workplace or further professional development
  • Empowering communities
    Empower fragile communities to become more resilient and to protect their vulnerable residents through measures which demonstrate long term social, environmental or economic improvements
  • Sustainable places
    Stimulate meaningful regeneration through actions which improve or enhance local infrastructure, landscape, biodiversity, or heritage to make a lasting difference to the places we live, work and visit

Applications for the 2nd round of the Highland element of the Partnership Fund which meet the above criteria are now being welcomed. Applications should reach us by no later than 25 August 2017. Guidelines and application forms can be found in the ‘More Information’ section below.
