Your charity for Scotland’s environment

CCF Grant Panel

When you apply for a Climate Challenge Fund grant, your application is summarised by the team at Keep Scotland Beautiful and sent to an independent grant panel for deliberation and decision.

The Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) Grant Panel meets to consider the applications and makes recommendations of which projects should receive funding to Roseanna Cunningham, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform.

Members of the CCF Grant Panel:

  • Elizabeth Leighton - Chair, (Environmental Consultant)
  • Tom Ballantine, (Stop Climate Chaos Scotland) 
  • Ian Cooke, (Development Trusts Association Scotland)
  • Stuart Hay, (Living Streets Scotland)      
  • Pauline Hinchion, (Scottish Community Reinvestment Trust)  
  • Roger Kelly, (The Royal Town Planning Institute)    
  • Louise Macdonald, (Young Scot) 
  • Lori McElroy, (Building Research Establishment)    
  • Lynne Ross, (2020 Climate Group)    
  • Ruchir Shah, (SCVO)      

We have been pleased to work with Young Scot who have selected and trained three young people who will be sitting on the Grant Panel. We welcome Cara Boeker, Greg Shand and Lara Williams to the Panel. We also thank previous panel members including Ruraidh Stewart and Ryan Thomson for all their input.
