    Principles of the Fund:
    The fund can be used for projects defined under the “Objects” of the Dunvegan Community Trust
    SCIO Constitution. Our Objectives are intentionally broad, so for example, Community
    development can cover a range of initiatives, from physical community assets to projects which
    tackle isolation within our community, promote social wellbeing, make us more sustainable and
    resilient etc. It’s advisable to speak to a trustee or our development officer before submitting your
    application, especially if you are unclear as to which objectives your project fits, and we will do our
    best to assist you. See our website committee members under Get Involved

    2. The advancement of Community Development

    3. The advancement of heritage and culture

    4.The provision or organisation of recreational facilities with the object of improving the
    conditions of life for the people of Dunvegan.
