Scottish Government Challenge Funding Opportunity

The Outer Hebrides Alcohol & Drug Partnership (OHADP) is pleased to announce a new funding stream available up to £150,000 from the Scottish Government.   The two year Challenge fund, which is now open to applications, offers the opportunity for services to rethink systems, test change or implement new methods of working.

There are two opportunities to access the funds: ‘Getting ready for change’ funding of up to £35,000 which will support reflection and review of current systems and ‘Implementing Change’ funding from £35,000 up to £150,000 which can be used to deliver required developments or reshaping of services.

The online application for the Scottish Government’s Challenge Fund is now live and available via the following link: The form is simple to use, and you can save your progress as you go along and return to it later.   Guidance notes and FAQs can be found below and may be helpful in completing your application:

Please note, all applications must, in the first instance, be reviewed and approved by the lead organisation which is the Outer Hebrides Alcohol & Drug Partnership prior to submission to Scottish Government.     The closing date for applications is 7th February 2019.  OHADP would therefore ask that any completed applications are returned to  no later than 12 noon on Friday 1st February 2019.
