The community we live and work in is important to us.

We recognised that there was a huge amount of charity and community work happening across the area and so we launched our Community Grant Scheme in 2015 to try and help.

Following the phenomenal success of the scheme over the last three years, we are delighted to launch our 2018 Community Grant Scheme.

Our Community Grant Scheme is aimed at helping to support local communities across the Highlands and Islands, and is open to all local groups, charities and organisations.

We will issue five “Mini Mac” Grants of £500 each and one “Mighty Mac” Grant of £1,000.

In its first year we received 116 applications with that figure more than doubling in 2017 to over 250 applications. The successful winners were:  Inverness Men’s Shed in 2015, Mikey’s Line in 2016 and our 2017 winners were Cantraybridge College.

Completed applications must be received at our offices by 14th of November 2018 (we have extended the closing date to help with the October holidays when many people are on holiday).   Applications will thereafter be reviewed by the Grant Awards Team and the successful applicants will be notified within 21 days of the closing date.

Applications can be emailed to or posted to Amanda MacGillivray, Macleod & MacCallum Limited, 28 Queensgate, Inverness, IV1 1DJ.
