Inspiring Scotland appointed Fund Manager for Scottish Government Equality and Human Rights Funds

Following a tender exercise, Inspiring Scotland has been appointed as Fund Manager for Scottish Government’s Equality and Human Rights Funds.

This work will start in November 2020 and involves supporting Scottish Government to develop the new Equality and Human Rights funding streams – Delivering Equally Safe (DES) and the Supporting Equality and Human Rights Fund (SEHR)

Equally Safe is Scotland’s strategy to prevent and eradicate violence against women and girls. It has a bold agenda to eliminate the gender inequality that lies at the root of violence, prioritises prevention, and ensures women and girls at risk receive effective specialist support.

We are delighted that our model of empowering organisations, investing time, money, and expertise, to help them maximise their social impact and continuously improve will contribute to this work. We look forward to developing and supporting this new Fund alongside SEHR which will continue the work of civil society partners to deliver equality and human rights priorities.

Our Fund Management also covers management of the Promoting Equality and Cohesion (PECF) and Equally Safe – Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and Rape Crisis Specific (RCS) programmes for the remainder of the funding period up to September 2021.

Throughout October we are working hard with the previous Fund Managers to ensure a smooth transition of the current funding programmes.

We look forward to working closely with all funding recipients to help achieve equality and human rights related outcomes in the national performance framework. For any further information please contact us at ehrenquiries@inspiringscotland.org.uk
