Clashindarroch Wind Farm

Community Fund


The Clashindarroch Community Fund is provided by Vattenfall, the developer and owner of the Clashindarroch Wind Farm in Aberdeenshire.  The Fund supports projects located within or directly benefiting one or more of the three community council areas of Huntly, Strathbogie and Tap O Noth and the area of the Cabrach Community Association.  The fund's purpose, priorities and award levels have been informed by the Clashindarroch Conversation which community members contributed to in 2014.   

Groups and organisations working to benefit people in the area may apply to the Fund. Your group must have a constitution (a governing document or set of rules) and be set up on a not-for-profit basis. It does not need to be a registered charity to apply.

For more information about the fund read the Fund Factsheet

Volunteer Development Bursary Scheme

The Vattenfall Clashindarroch Community Fund Panel has decided to make the sum of £5,000 available to provide a Bursary Scheme to increase the pool of volunteers in the community who have the training and skills needed to help increase participation in grassroots sports and physical activity or cultural activity and the arts or other recreational activity in the area of benefit for this Fund. 

The maximum bursary award is £500 and there are two stages to the award:

  • Stage 1 involves you doing the course or training. The award can cover the cost of the course, training or event and/or the travel and subsistence costs. 

  • Stage 2 is about using your new skills in a voluntary capacity within the area of benefit

More details are available in the application form. There are no deadlines for these applications, and are decided on a rolling basis.  Once the initial £5,000 has been awarded, the Panel will review the Bursary Scheme. 

Making A Difference

The fund will support projects which will support positive change and strategic impact, in particular the fund will support projects which:

* improve community services and facilities
* increase participation in and access to contemporary culture, events and recreational activity
* preserve and enhance the natural environment for residents and visitors
* promote rural regeneration
* celebrate the area's cultural, historic and archaelogical heritage.
