Circular Communities Scotland’s Share and Repair Network is delighted to announce that five Circular Communities Scotland members have been successful in their applications to the Share and Repair Network Tourism Fund.

In December 2023 we were pleased to promote the availability of this fund, which works to support innovative circular approaches in repair, sharing or re-use targeted at the tourism sector.

Zero Waste Scotland commissioned Circular Communities Scotland’s Share and Repair Network to administer the fund, which became available through Airbnb’s involvement in the COP26 summit in Glasgow. 

After a rigorous two stage application process, we are happy to share that our successful members will begin their projects in April and May 2024. 

Grants awarded range from £17,500 to £35,000 and will provide a variety of inspiring and meaningful sharing and repairing projects, helping to grow sustainability in tourism. The projects aim to use share, repair, or reuse to open possibilities for a more circular approach: reducing the consumption of new goods; avoiding the purchase of goods for single use, and effecting behaviour-change. 

A huge congratulations to:

Broadford and Strath Community Company (Isle of Skye)

Grantown Remakery (Highlands)

Merry Go Round (Glasgow)

Transition Stirling 

Linlithgow Development Trust

We are delighted to be able to support our members through this fund and to help provide meaningful investment into the future of sustainable tourism in Scotland.

Rhoda Reid the Circular Communities Scotland Fund Coordinator is looking forward to working with the projects and providing a report at the end of the funding year showing our collective impact and learning from fund outcomes. To learn more, email rhoda@circularcommunities.scot
