Rural Direct is a new service which assists Scotland’s rural communities to access funding opportunities. Projects eligible for funding through the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP)∞ can include anything from refurbishing a village hall through to long term plans for community development. Options include management of archaeological or historic sites and the the management and repair of vernacular buildings.
Rural Direct∞, which is delivered through the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), offers advice and guidance, including support through all the stages of the application process, and in addition can also help signpost you to other possible funding opportunities. In addition, it is recommended that groups contact Archaeology Scotland∞ and Historic Scotland∞ for specialist advice, if they are planning to work with archaeological material or sites.
