Playground funding made more accessible

Accessing funding for playground equipment has just been made easier thanks to a new initiative launched by Timberplay Scotland.

Timberplay Scotland has joined forces with Safe Consultancy, a funding specialist aimed at helping not-for-profit organisations achieve their funding goals.

The new partnership has opened the doors for schools, parish councils, community groups and charities to get access to full or part funding to help turn their project into a reality.

The free advice service includes an assessment of eligibility, the identification of a funding stream, support if needed with the application form and costings for the project. It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure the application is submitted and wait to hear the result.

To ensure eligibility, an organisation must be not-for-profit, have a minimum of three people on their management committee and have a bank account in the group’s name. The bank account must have a minimum of two signatories to authorise payments.

This is a financially risk free service for customers for applications up to the value of £10,000.

Mark Grimshaw from Timberplay Scotland said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations who are struggling with funds to help bring their project to life.

“Providing new and exciting playgrounds for young people within the community and schools is essential but not always possible due to tightening budgets. Our funding partnership is a pathway to access funding streams which many of our customers don’t know about. It’s an exciting addition to Timberplay Scotland’s offering to customers.”
