Local residents wanted to represent area on decision making Panel

23 January 2019

Two vacancies have arisen for people living in the Glenfarg area and one for people living in Earn to serve on RWE Innogy Lochelbank Community Fund Panel. This locally appointed panel makes decisions about awards from the Fund, which exists to benefit the Glenfarg and Earn community council areas.

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

The Panel meets three times a year to advise the fund administrator, Foundation Scotland, on grants awards from the fund. Foundation Scotland was appointed by the wind farm operator, RWE Innogy, to administer the Community Fund in 2011. The Foundation works with communities local to the wind farm site to help them decide how funds should be allocated, using its grant-making expertise to ensure positive long lasting impact.

In total, the Panel comprises three members from each of the two Community Council areas; two are community representatives (serving between 1 and 3 years) and one is a Community Councillor. The panel member being sought will work alongside the existing representatives for the Earn area and  Glenfarg Community Council representatives.

To be considered for this role, please download a nomination form from /communities/funds/lochelbank-fund-news/ or alternatively email secretary@glenfarg.org or tom@foundationscotland.org.uk

Nominees must be 18 or over and on the electoral role for Glenfarg Community Council area or Earn Community Council area. In the event of more nominations being received than required by the closing date, a selection process will run. Nomination forms must be completed and returned to Foundation Scotland by

5pm: 22 February for the Earn vacancy

5pm Thursday 28th February for Glenfarg vacancy.
