Isles of Scilly Steamship Group Community Fund

Our Community Fund is designed to support local projects and good causes that have a tangible on-going positive impact from a community, social or environmental perspective. It's run by the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group and projects are selected by a community panel. The panel is chaired by one of our non-executive directors, with help from an independent panel. The committee sets the eligibility criteria for the fund, looks at its effect in the community and meets evaluates funding bids.

Four levels of funding

There are two kinds of grant you can apply for. One ‘HERO project’ will be awarded up to £10,000, with a further possibility for up to eight projects to receive grants at levels of up to £5,000, £2,500 or £1,250. The number of lower value applications at each level will vary depending upon applications recieved to make up the £30,00 total. There are extra requirements to qualify as a HERO project, and you should make it clear which funding level you’re applying for on your application form.

How we allocate the money

The panel members score each application on criteria like community impact., how many people you'll help, the sustainability of your project, and the level of detail you've provided. HERO project applications should also show they'll make a long-lasting difference in the community- including clear evidence about your impactt, community feedback on the need, and how you'll include the Steamship Group as sponsor. Please be sure to include full, projected budget for your project.
