Strathnairn Community Benefit Fund

Strathnairn Community Benefit Fund (SCBF) uses community benefit income from nearby wind farms and a hydro scheme to improve the lives of residents in this rural community. 

SCBF has funded things like community transport, after school activities for children and running costs for community halls, as well as providing grants to help residents pay their fuel bills, make their homes more energy efficient or install renewables. Changes to the fund governance in 2018 have helped the local community become more involved in SCBF, presenting some exciting opportunities.
