The Ecology Centre staff and volunteers are extremely disappointed about the decision not to award funding for our Sharing Skills – Low Carbon Living project through Keep Scotland Beautiful, who manage the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) on behalf of the Scottish Government. This decision impacts our ability to continue with the important work we do in our Tool Shed, our community food growing activities and our Wednesday volunteer lunch.
The Centre greatly values the support that Keep Scotland Beautiful has provided since 2014, but we are keen to understand their decision making process.
We are actively seeking clarification from Keep Scotland Beautiful and support from our local representatives on this matter, while looking at other funding streams as a matter of urgency to ensure we can continue.
Further updates will be added to our website.
