Elgin Sports Community Trust (ESCT) aims to improve local sports facilities to create better health and social welfare opportunities for all. Their Phase Two project at The Gleaner Arena is to build a recreational hub that will include a viewing gallery, office space and storage for equipment along with a fully functioning CCTV system. ESCT would like to make this hub a warm, safe space for many different groups to use including ‘Active Recovery’ for people recovering from addictions and those tackling social isolation. Funding from Scotmid would support this huge step in the development of ESCT and their community offering.

Perth Autism Support bridges the gap in services for autistic children, young people and their families; Perth Autism Support is an autism specialist service.  With over 1,100 children and young people registered for services and recent expansion into Dundee, the service provides a wide range of bespoke services..  Having recently relocated to accommodate the increasing demand on services, funding from Scotmid will contribute towards the renovation of the building to create a modern, bright space for the young people to use, a space they can call their own, make friends and build confidence.

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) saves and improves lives across Scotland every day, 365 days of the year. SCAA is an integral part of Scotland’s frontline emergency response network, with paramedic crews based at Perth and Aberdeen. The fast response of SCAA, and its ability to reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes saves vital time when every second really does count. Funding will be used to purchase new mascot costumes to help SCAA raise the charity’s profile, engage with the public and raise more money at community events across Scotland.
