Deadline for applications – 11am on Monday 12 September

The aim of Stirling’s Cost of Living Support Fund is to support local third and public sector organisations to tackle the impacts of the cost of living crisis on communities in the Stirling Council area. A total funding pot of £150,000 is available.

Applications with expected:

  • minimum value of £10,000 to a maximum of £35,000

are invited, though further discussions can take place for projects which may fall outwith these values.

Funding is available for projects which aim to ensure that everyone across Stirling’s communities who find themselves already in crisis or vulnerable to the rising cost of living is supported. The Fund will consider both internal services provision and external organisations who can either support or signpost onto other organisations which provide funding, budgeting or financial advice as well as support for families and individuals on managing household bills. 

Evidence suggests that the most impactful supports are

  • Fuel poverty/Energy Advice
  • Financial Literacy
  • Money, Debt and Benefit Advice
  • Digital Inclusion
  • Income Maximisation and Budgeting Advice

and we invite applications based around this provision and/or further means of support identified.

Internal Stirling Council Services, community planning partner public sector agencies, and constituted third sector/community organisations that work within the Stirling Council area, and have an eligible project that will be delivered within the Council area, can also apply.
