Money for Moray has secured £60,000 from the Scottish Government Community Choices Fund to be awarded in Moray to support projects which improve the health and wellbeing* for any age group within the local community.
Money for Moray wants to put YOU in control of how and where it’s spent.

The ‘Money for Moray’ initiative lets the local community decide for themselves which projects are needed in the area.

Projects that are sustainable and will:

  • Ensure people are able to look after and improve their own health and wellbeing, and live in good health for longer.
  • Provide additional or new services

  • For example:

  • Exercise classes
  • Baby massage classes
  • Community sport groups
  • Children's outdoor activity groups

Your Imagination has no limit!

Ongoing running costs, such as:

  • Salaries
  • Wages
  • Heating & Lighting
  • Rent
  • Maintenance etc

If you are a new or existing local community or voluntary group based in Moray
**even an informal group–
you can apply for funding from £200 to £4000 to put your ideas into action.
(Only one application per group).

Applications will NOT be accepted from national or commercial organisations, or from groups with an annual income in excess of £50,000.

All activities will have to happen in Moray and benefit the health and wellbeing of the local community. All areas of Moray are eligible to apply.

** Informal Groups do not need to have a constitution or a bank account but will require the support of a constituted local group prepared to accept monies on your behalf.

To apply for the funding a fully completed application must be received before 5.00pm on Friday 16th February 2018.

Confirmation of any necessary planning permissions and/or consents – for example outdoor fitness equipment on local authority land – will be sought from applicants.

Your Project must be completed by 31st December 2018

* The World Health Organisation’s definition of health and wellbeing is: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

If your idea meets the criteria, you will be required to make a short presentation at an event open to the public.
This will be held on 18th March 2018 in the Grant Hall, Rothes.

All those Aged 14+, attending the event will be eligible to vote on the applications.
