Officers Association Scotland (OAS) is widening the scope of its operations and has added grants to other charities to its existing portfolio of employment advice and welfare services…
OAS is looking to support activities which assist veterans generally, but which must either include officers and their dependents based in Scotland among the beneficiaries or have the potential to do so.
There is a maximum of £25,000 available for each grant.
Applications should be for capital rather than revenue projects i.e. the grants are not intended to support business as usual operations. Grants can be spread over two or three consecutive years but the maximum grant of £25,000 still applies. Previous recipients of grants from OAS may apply for further support.
The Charity Executive will review and assess all applications, and make site visits or conduct interviews as necessary, before recommendations and decisions are made by the Board of Trustees. They will consider a range of factors including the service or item being applied for, the number of beneficiaries, the importance of the grant to the applicant charity and the needs of the beneficiaries.
All applicants will be sent an email acknowledgement of receipt of their application, as well as notification of how their application has fared, once a decision has been made.
