Extra Covid-19 Relief From Scottish Retailers

  • Date published: 19/08/20

This week Foundation Scotland is delighted to announce a partnership with Hammerson, owners of premium shopping centres in Glasgow and Aberdeen to launch their Giving Back Project offering £40,000 to local groups impacted by Covid-19.

Funding from The Giving Back Project is being offered by the Silverburn centre in Glasgow and the Union Square centre in Aberdeen, both centres offering 10 grants of £2,000 to local charities and organisations. The Giving Back Project is specifically designed to support the areas that have been hardest hit by the pandemic, and the lockdowns of the past few months. It will target groups that engage in any of the following:

  • Foodbank support and tackling food poverty
  • Providing support services to people affected by domestic violence and abuse
  • Supporting those who are homeless or rough sleeping
  • Providing employment opportunities, enterprise or skills development

For over 20 years, we’ve been bringing together funders and grassroots organisations to help support and strengthen communities in every corner of Scotland. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Hammerson to further support local groups in Aberdeen and Glasgow. Just a few thousand pounds can make a significant difference, even more so during this pandemic.  We’ve already distributed more than £1m in crisis funding across these two cities since April so this extra funding boost from Hammerson is a further lifeline


Giles Ruck, Chief Executive at Foundation Scotland.

Applications for funding will be open from 18th August until 18th September and can be made online.
