The aim of the fund is to support local communities through promoting the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the area. The funds received are used to make grants to community groups, charities and voluntary organisations in line with the identified criteria and objectives in the current East Kintyre Community Action Plan.
The EKWFT is managed by a Committee comprising of EKCC Councillors and three independent members of the public. The main role of all Trustees is to ensure proper governance of the fund and adherence to the established rules and criteria.
An advertisement goes in to the Campbeltown Courier approximately six weeks before the tranche meeting is held and application forms are available by clicking the application button below. It is hoped that as more turbines are introduced in Kintyre, more money will be available for grants.
