Panel vacancies for Avich area funds

Three vacancies have arisen for people living, working or volunteering in the Avich area to serve on the local panel that makes grant awards from the new River Avich Hydro Community Benefit Fund.

The River Avich Hydro Community Benefit fund is provided by Awesome Energy Dalriada Ltd, the community-run owner and operator of the River Avich Hydro scheme. It will support charitable activity that benefits the settlements of Dalavich, Inverinan, Kilmaha and Lochavich. The locally appointed panel will meet up to twice each year to recommend grant awards.

There is also a vacancy for one person to represent the Avich communities on the panel that makes grant awards from the established An Suidhe Wind Farm Community Fund. The An Suidhe Panel meets once a year to recommend grant awards from that fund.

This is an opportunity for local people to help ensure the two funds are spent on projects that provide real benefit to the local community. Panel membership is a voluntary role, though travel and childcare costs related to meetings will be reimbursed. Nominees must live, work or volunteer in the Dalavich, Inverinan, Kilmaha or Lochavich areas. Role profiles for each panel can be found below.

To complete the online application form please click here no later than 5 pm on Monday 27th September 2021.

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 0300.
