Through our Strathy North wind farm we make around £225,000 per year available for community and charitable projects. Between 2014 and 2039 we expect to invest £4.5million in local projects.

Additional funding is committed to the regional Sustainable Development Fund. This fund opens every two years and supports transformational projects across the Highland local authority area.


The community fund offers grants of up to £25,000 to support projects which build the sustainability of the local communities as vibrant places to live, work and visit, and support the development of a range of activities and services available to the community such as:

  • The running costs of groups
  • Employees or essential workers
  • Cost consultation and feasibility studies
  • Events and festivals
  • The cost of purchasing equipment
  • Maintenance or refurbishment of community facilities

Projects in the following community council areas can apply:

  • Bettyhill, Strathnaver and Altnaharra
  • Melvich
  • Strathy and Armadale

You can see who is eligible to apply here.

Any group seeking funding of more than £25,000 should contact the Community Investment Manager (details below) before applying.
