Climate Challenge Fund transition
We have managed and developed the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) on behalf of the Scottish Government since the fund was launched in 2008 and this role will conclude on 30 June 2021. From this time groups and organisations who continue to be in receipt of CCF funds will receive support directly from the Scottish Government.
We’re working closely with colleagues at the Scottish Government to ensure a smooth transition:
- Current CCF grant recipients will be kept informed of arrangements by their Development Officer, with a special webinar planned for mid-June.
- The CCF website will continue as a streamlined read only platform that celebrates the CCF.
- CCF social media feeds will transfer to the Scottish Government.
- From 1 July enquiries should be directed to ClimateChangeEngagement@gov.scot
We have been delighted to manage and develop the CCF on behalf of the Scottish Government since the fund was launched in 2008 and support communities across Scotland to take action on climate change.
Since its inception 1,150 projects across all 32 local authorities have been awarded CCF grants. Total CCF funding since 2008 exceeds £111 million. And in the last four years alone over 2,000 representatives from community-led organisations have attended CCF events, with 396 certified as Carbon Literate through training offered via the CCF.
We will be celebrating all the fantastic CCF achievements by publishing a report to share some of the wonderful stories of climate action and learning the fund has inspired - both at a community and individual level. We’ll also be premiering the ‘Decade of CCF’ film to celebrate the impact of the fund.
