The October edition of ACVO News launched this week, bringing you the latest news, updates and opportunities from Aberdeen’s third sector.
This month we have the exciting news to share that the Just Transition PB Fund public vote is now open and your local community needs you! Have your say over which of the 23 local green projects receive a share of the £500,000 made available in the city through this Scottish Government Fund.
ACVO has been delivering the fund in Aberdeen in partnership with NESCAN Hub and it has been fantastic to see all the amazing and innovative ideas submitted by local organisations. Now as we enter the public vote, the excitement ramps up once again – get your votes in before 1700hrs on Friday October 13th.
We are also pleased to let you know that year 3 of the Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund is open for applications – last year money was allocated very quickly and we expect this year to be the same so dive in to the news to find out more about the fund and how to apply!
This month we also have features looking at Sport Aberdeen’s SPACE project, which sees the organisation supporting care experienced young people in line with the outcomes of The Promise Scotland, and an interview with ACE Voices Founder and Director, Alec Thompson-Miller about the history and future of their intergenerational work in the North East and beyond.
These are your updates and this is your news.
We are always on the lookout for stories and features – if something is happening in Aberdeen you think we should know about get in touch with ACVO’s Communication Officer Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org or ACVO’s Digital Media Assistant Emily at email@example.com so we can highlight your work.
