Funding from Aberdeenshire Council

Lottery Funding

Welcome to Aberdeenshire Council's Funding webpages.

Aberdeenshire Council offers funding to meet a variety of needs. The council's funds, however, are extremely limited and the council's main aim is to direct organisations to other sources of funding by means of advice from officers, and by encouraging organisations to make use of Aberdeenshire 4 Community. This is a free online tool that lets you search and filter thousands of potential funding sources.


Help with your application


You can use Aberdeenshire 4 Community, the free online funding search tool sponsored by Aberdeenshire Council. This portal will help you identify other possible sources of funding for your project.

Additionally you can research many other funding schemes on the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations website.

Please email funding@aberdeenshire.gov.uk for more information or assistance. Alternatively you can write to us at Woodhill House, Westburn Road, Aberdeen, AB16 5GB.



Where can I apply to?

The list below shows the range of Council and Council-affiliated grants schemes that are available. You are also welcome to use the Aberdeenshire 4 Community service provided free of charge by the council. You can access Aberdeenshire 4 Community here.
