Achieving Community Empowerment (ACE) Programme (2009 - 2014)

Funder: Big Lottery Fund

In 2009, SCDC was awarded 5 years funding from the Big Lottery Fund to deliver a capacity building support programme to local community groups and organisations across Scotland.  The ACE programme is targeted towards new and emerging community groups who require support to develop their skills and confidence to be more effective organisations and have greater influence over decisions which affect their community.  The programme combines mentoring and developmental support and is intended to directly benefit 50 community organisations across Scotland over 5 years.
