Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed the news that Scottish & Southern Energy has opened the second round of its Perthshire Sustainable Development Fund, making approximately £240,000 available to support ‘transformative’ community projects. 

Ms Cunningham said:

“I am delighted to be able to help spread the word about SSE’s Perthshire Sustainable Development Fund.  It I great to see a big local employer committing to such a significant investment in local communities.
 
“The Fund is open to non-profit-making organisations, community groups and charities across Perthshire.  Successful projects will have the potential to deliver transformational social, economic and environmental changes in their local area and support long-term community development.
 
“I would urge anyone involved in developing a project which meets the criteria to submit an application."
