Foundation Scotland has set up a Flood Recovery Fund to relieve hardship across Scotland caused directly or indirectly by storm damage and flooding in December 2015 and early 2016. The fund is open to individuals or families, and community organisations involved in the flood relief effort.
Grants of up to £500 are available for eligible individuals or families. This is in addition to claiming the £1500 grant from the Scottish Government that is administered by local authorities.
