The grants are to help community-led organisations develop an application for future climate action funding or to support peer-to-peer learning activities that build their capacity to tackle climate change.
How is it delivered?
CEMVO Climate Change Officers are working together with CCF Development Officers to support ethnic minority community groups throughout the CCF application process. CEMVO will provide additional support at pre- and post application stage through:
· Telephone meetings
· Face-to-face meetings
CEMVO will focus on helping applicants to understand the application process and guidance that is currently available.
We will also be running a session of networking events and training workshops as identified by community needs.
The development grant allows community consultations to take place and to explore potential climate action. CEMVO Scotland is able to deliver consultation workshops using the "Shifting Normal Model" and these workshops will be tailored to meet the needs of your organisation.
