Grant funding, In-court advice and home owner and debtor protection


Grant Funding

We are responsible for the funding, administration and overview of a range of legal assistance projects and services across the country, operating under our grant funding programme.


Programme management and development

Our Policy & Development Department work with project managers to offer support, guidance and information. We receive regular reports from the projects we fund through the programme. We report the progress of the overall programme of funding to our Board members, to the Scottish Government and Money Advice Service.

Development of new grant funding programme - Making Advice Work (MAW) 2013-2015

We were asked by the Scottish Government and the Money Advice Service to run the Making Advice Work grant funding programme. The programme focusses on improving access to advice for people in Scotland with a view to promoting achievement of particular priority outcomes. You can read more about the programme on our Making Advice Work page.
