People living in the Inveraray area are invited to serve on the An Suidhe Wind Farm Community Fund Panel. The panel makes decisions about awards from the An Suidhe Fund, which supports charitable activities that benefit Dalavich; Eredine; Furnace; and Inveraray.

This is an opportunity to help ensure the fund is spent on projects that provide real benefit to those communities.

The panel meets once a year, in November, to advise on grants awards. Panel membership is a voluntary role, though travel and childcare costs related to meetings will be reimbursed.

Grantmaking experts Foundation Scotland were appointed by the wind farm operator, RWE, in 2012 to administer the Community Fund. The Foundation works with the panel to help decide how funds are to be awarded.

The panel comprises two members from each of the four communities; one is a community representative and the other is a Community Councillor or Director of Dalavich Improvement Group (DIG). The Panel member being sought will work alongside the existing panel members.

If you are aged 18 or over and live in the Inveraray area, then you are invited to nominate yourself for the role of community representative for Inveraray.

You can find out more about what’s involved in the Role Profile below.

In the event of more nominations being received than there are spaces available, a selection process will run. For more information contact Tom Black, email or call 0131 524 0331.
