We work with community organisations to support their preparation and application for Scottish Land Fund / Big lottery funding (stage 1 and 2) and can assist in the complete community asset transfer process. We also work in partnership with both the NHS and local authorities developing innovative solutions to marketing and communications and co designed service delivery.
SKS prepared the business plan for Bannockburn House Trust’s successful Stage 2 Scottish Land Fund / Big Lottery application. The award of £648,300 to the Trust, will help the local community to purchase Bannockburn House and its 25 acres of surrounding land for community use.
A number of projects were carried out by SKS to ensure that the Gorebridge Beacon could function appropriately as a community hub: market analysis for the offices / meeting room / general purpose rooms, an options appraisal for the cafe space, business planning, finances and an options appraisal on Governance.
SKS Scotland has worked on both a strategic and task-based level with Scottish Autism since 2010, providing ongoing local PR to support the marketing and fundraising functions, and the development and implementation of a major fundraising campaign. We have also carried out a strategy review of the potential to develop and increase fundraising income within the charity.
