Views sought for potential Enterprise Fund

10 April 2014

Foundation Scotland is undertaking  research on behalf of SSE to determine the level of need for an Enterprise Fund, specifically for the area of benefit as defined by the SSE Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund, serving the Community Council areas of Aberfeldy, Dunkeld & Birnam, Kenmore & District, Mid Atholl, Strathay & Grandtully and Dull & Weem.

It is anticipated that this additional one-off Fund will be in the region of £500,000 and will invest in enterprise development across this area. The aspiration is that the Fund will be a dedicated resource for local small businesses, social enterprises and other third sector organisations to support training, enterprise, development and sustainable job creation.

As with the SSE Griffin and Calliachar Community Fund, any awards made from the new Fund must demonstrate clear community benefit.

We are now seeking the views of local businesses, social enterprises and third sector organisations within the area as to the level of need for enterprise support, training, apprenticeship/placement schemes and to identify any other areas of support required by the local business, social enterprise and educational community.

Responses to this questionnaire will help shape the Fund and how it supports local local employability, training and business growth.

It is anticipated that this Fund will be complementary to existing programmes of support from other providers.

It is the aspiration of SSE that the Fund retains some level of sustainability and we welcome your thoughts on how this could be achieved.

If you own or run a business, social enterprise or third sector organisation in the above area please take ten minutes to let us know what you think by completing the survey. Should any of your answers be used in any publication, they will be anonymised.

Please submit your responses by Sunday 11th May.
