Foundation Scotland has launched an online survey to gather views on the delivery and impact of the Stroupster Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund, including the Dunnet and Canisbay Education and Training Fund. Views are welcome from the whole community whether they have first knowledge of applying for funding or not.

The Stroupster Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund was launched in 2016. Since then small changes have been made such as increasing the number of rounds per year from two to three, and more significant changes such as the launch of the Education and Training Fund.

The form can be accessed online at: bit.ly/Stroupstersurvey

The deadline is January 31, 2022. The Stroupster Fund Panel will review the results and take new ideas on board.
