Grants and Fund Supporting Johnstonebridge

Johnstonebridge Community Benefit Funding

If you live in the parish of Johnstone, you are fortunate to be able to access a number of funding streams to support community benefit, training and education, and in some cases to subsidise electricity costs. Grants of between £1 and £20,000 are available for applications that meet the fund criteria.

Grants can be used to start community social or sports groups, purchase equipment, engage in training or education or undertake research or feasibility studies, to name but a few ideas.

Johnstonebridge falls into the area of benefit for several windfarms in the surrounding area. These are Clyde Dumfries & Galloway, Minsca, Harestanes and Minnygap.
