Scotland Conference 2024: Funding Summit





There’s little doubt about the biggest challenge facing Community Transport in Scotland today: Funding.

Costs are going up and up. Giving is down. Grants are being cut. Contracts are being squeezed. Our future is on the line.

After 15 years of government austerity, economic stagnation and financial instability, more lifeline Community Transport services are under threat than at any time in living memory. Meanwhile, the need is only growing.

With the crisis deepening, and a UK General Election on the horizon, CTA’s Scotland Conference 2024 will ask:

  • How can we campaign together to protect essential funding for Community Transport?
  • How can you make your funding application or contract bid stand out?
  • How can you become more financially secure and sustainable?
  • How can we strengthen the case for investment in our sector’s modernisation and growth?

Join us in Stirling at The Robertson Trust's The Barracks Conference Centre to:

  • Meet with funders face-to-face
  • Learn from funding experts;
  • Share your experiences, ideas and strategies; and,
  • Network with experts, funders, operators and stakeholders
