Inverclyde Community Fund Releases Multiple Grants to Support Local Group’s Activities
Eight local groups from across Inverclyde are celebrating after the Inverclyde Community Fund (ICF) released funds to support their projects aims.
The fund, which was first created in 2012 by CVS Inverclyde, relaunched in March 2020 with funding available for both local activities and Covid-19 related projects.
The groups which have successfully applied include:
Recovery Café – Purchase of a Laptop for the organisation;
Inverclyde Shed – The creation of a digital shed in Gourock;
Clyde Fisherman’s Trust – Food for families during Covid-19;
Wellington Park Bowling Club – Creation of a mobile access ramp;
I-FIT – Support for isolated people during Covid-19;
St Mary’s Church Community Services – Keeping members updated during Covid-19;
Greenock Morton Community Trust – Sharing Covid-19 workbooks to schools;
Proud2Care – Purchase of Yoga equipment for users.
Alongside my fellow Trustees, we are delighted to make the first awards since the relaunch of the Inverclyde Community Fund.
All of these projects will provide the much-needed support and enhancements to those that need them the most, and we wish all of the group's success with their aims.
I would again invite as many local organisations to consider applying to the fund to see if we can support their aims and further help the third sector across Inverclyde.”

ICF is also celebrating after receiving donations of £2,000 from Inverclyde Renewables LLP and the Corra Foundation, with the aim for these to support further groups that are delivering Covid-19 related activities to support Inverclyde residents.
We would like to thank both Inverclyde Renewables LLP and Corra Foundation for their kind donations which are greatly appreciated.
This additional funding is a welcome boost in ensuring that Inverclyde Community Fund can allocate funds to those that need it the most at this exceptionally difficult time.
We further invite any voluntary groups and organisations looking for financial aid to help deliver the required support to apply for funding.
