ACT have secured a share of funding made available through the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) to help cut carbon emissions in Mid Argyll.

The project "ACT Now" has been awarded £107,000 to run for 2 years and will offer free support to Mid-Argyll communities to help them adopt strategies to tackle climate change by reducing their impact on the environment. Through a series of (initially online) workshops and activities we will support people to adopt new practices around food, travel and waste as well as supplying information on climate change and creating a lower carbon community.

Find out more about the project and keep up to date with developments on the project webpage.

We are also recruiting a project officer for this exciting project - find out more and download an application form here. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday 15th April 2020 with interviews being conducted online in the week beginning 20th April 2020. 

The project is funded through the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund (CCF). The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful, providing funding and support for community groups to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions. The CCF has awarded over 1,100 grants since its introduction in 2008, for projects involving energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency. Total CCF funding since 2008 has exceeded £104 million. Further information at
