Success of Small Grants Scheme

The Western Isles Development Trust (“WIDT”) is delighted to announce that funds from its small grants scheme (opened in September 2019) have been almost fully committed. 

Nearly £40,000.00 has been awarded to assist projects of benefit to communities across the Western Isles.  A list of successful applicants can be found on the WIDT Website and includes funding to support the Point and Sandwick coastal community path, the Ceòlas Buttons and Bows project, the Seallam archiving project for Harris Development Limited and the Safeplay project at Spors Nis.  A total of 22 applications have been submitted with all but 3 proving successful.   

The scheme will be renewed in September 2020.  WIDT’s main fund remains open for applications.
