Micro grants

Did you know that individuals and community groups can apply to Dunadd Community Council for a micro grant of up to £250.

The grant can be used for anything that has a community benefit – eg community activities, training courses (that benefit the community), community and school events.

Some of the grants we have awarded this year include – a new notice board in Kilmartin, new pads for defibrillators in Ford and Kilmartin and book swap.

If you would like to apply for a grant, please email secretary@dunaddcc.org with a covering letter stating what you are looking for and how this will benefit the community. Decisions are made at the next meeting following the receipt of application.

Thank you.

Dunadd Community Council – meeting to discuss windfarm Community Benefits/ Shared Ownership schemes

When:  Thursday 18th May 2023

Where: Ford Village Hall

Time:    6pm – 7pm

Dunadd Community Council have been discussing Community Benefit/ Shared Ownership schemes that can come from windfarm developments.  These discussions have focussed on ensuring that funds are used equitably.

As a result of discussions Dunadd Community Enterprise have offered to manage the receipt of applications, conduct due diligence and make recommendations to a separate decision making body made up of residents on proposals.  This is the process that is used in Tarbert & Skipness.  Other options could be to have the funds held by an organisation like Foundation Scotland.

We would like to invite all residents of Dunadd (Kilmichael, Kilmartin, Slockavullin, Ford and the environs) along to get views on how Community Funds should be managed.  This is purely an information gathering session. 

If you are unable to attend the meeting please email any feedback to secretary@dunaddcc.org.
