Hadyard Hill announces new secretariat

17 August 2015

The Board of Hadyard Hill Community Benefit Fund has appointed Foundation Scotland to administer funds it receives from the SSE Hadyard Hill wind farm for the benefit of the Barr, Dailly, Pinmore and Pinwherry communities.

Since 2006 Ailsa Horizons, a local social enterprise and charity, has provided secretariat services to the Hadyard Hill Board of Directors. But administration arrangements are now changing and Hadyard Hill will be run with support from Foundation Scotland.

Foundation Scotland is an independent grant making charity that distributes funds for community groups across Scotland. It has particular expertise in working with developers, communities and other local organisations to design and distribute community funds from wind farms.

Helena Menhinick, Hadyard Hill Chair said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Ailsa Horizons for their work over the years, and wish them well in their future projects. We are now looking forward to working with Foundation Scotland and benefitting from their extensive experience in grant making to ensure that these funds continue to achieve real impact and legacy in our communities.”

Ciara Wilson, SSE Community Fund Manager said: “SSE has worked with Foundation Scotland to deliver a number of wind farm community funds across the country. Their expertise in this field will be a great asset to the Hadyard Hill Community Benefit Fund going forward.”

Cara Gillespie, Community Engagement Manager for South Scotland, Foundation Scotland commented, “We are looking forward to working with the Hadyard Hill Directors to ensure the fund continues to have lasting impact for the communities.”

The Fund is currently closed to new applications whilst Foundation Scotland and the Directors review Hadyard Hill’s application, assessment and reporting processes. Any changes will be announced in the local press in advance of the Fund reopening in January 2016.
