Homebuilder Miller Homes has opened up applications for its community fund initiative, which will see £10,000 shared among those in need across the Central Belt and beyond.

The fund will support a variety of groups near Miller Homes’ 16 Scottish developments that are linked to education, promoting wellbeing, supporting the environment, and encouraging participation in sport.

Since its launch in 2022, the initiative has already supported 92 groups in Scotland, equating to £60,000 of funding that has made a direct difference to those who need a helping hand.

David McGrath, divisional managing director for Miller Homes Scotland, is eager to hear from groups looking to improve the local community.

He said: “Our Community Fund is a great opportunity for those who are at the early stages of starting a community project or groups that are in need of an injection of funding to help their ongoing efforts.

“We are continuously looking at how to support the communities we’re building in and urge groups of all backgrounds to get in touch.

“All they need to do is tell us what they want to achieve through their application form and our Community Fund Ambassadors will review the applications to select the projects which will receive an award.”

This is the first round of funding for 2024, with a second round taking place in the latter half of the year. Each of Miller Homes’ 10 regional offices across the UK has its own £10,000 fund to support community initiatives annually.

Applications for the community fund will close on Wednesday 24 April, with a minimum of £250 and a maximum of £2,000 awarded. Successful applicants will be notified in May.
