Grant funding is available for Scottish organisations to become Delivery Partners in Active Citizens, the British Council's social leadership training programme which promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development, working with participants aged 18 and over.

Active Citizens is open to a range of organisations, including grassroots and religious groups, sports teams, businesses, education providers, charities, youth organisations, arts organisations and social entrepreneurs.

In 2018 two Scottish organisations were selected to become Delivery Partners. This year we want to help more Scottish organisations to connect with the programme. By bringing together people from different cultures, beliefs and perspectives, we can provide more opportunities to learn, share stories, and ultimately create a fairer, more inclusive Scotland.

Interested? You should be!

Have a read of our Active Citizens information pages for full details and information on how to apply.

The next deadline for applications is at 23:00 on Monday 3 June 2019.
