Integrated Grant Fund

The Integrated Grant Fund (IGF) provides grant funding to organisations to deliver high quality and much needed services to the citizens of Glasgow.

Funding is allocated to meet the priorities of the council and of the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership (GCPP). From 2015/16, the IGF will support a wide range of activity under 6 new grants programmes each with their own programme outcomes:

  • Alcohol and Health & Wellbeing
  • Youth Employment and Young People
  • Vulnerable People and Families
  • Safer Communities
  • Fairer Communities
  • Sustainable Communities

The IGF 3 year programmes of funding from 2015/16 were approved by the council and GCPP in December 2014 with updated  pdf icon Standard Conditions of Funding 2015-18 [236kb].

The grants and initiatives office

The grants and initiatives office works in conjunction with staff from across the council and its partner agencies to recommend, manage, monitor and administer the council's integrated grant fund.

The Team has 4 key objectives:

  1. Ensure the effective use of the IGF and other funding streams in line with the council and Glasgow Community Planning Partnership priorities.
  2. Develop strong and effective partnerships - these will include but not be limited to partnerships with the third sector.
  3. Develop, implement and review policies and procedures to ensure best practice.
  4. Systematically plan, implement, review and celebrate our work.
