Perceptions of the Scottish Land Fund Overall
Perceptions of the Scottish Land Fund were broadly positive, as shown in Figure 7 below, with the vast majority of community groups (92%) regarding the process overall as good. Overwhelmingly, almost all felt that the advice offered to submit their application (95%) and feedback received on applications (91%) was good. There is a slight drop off of support for the process when considering the transparency of the decision made about funding (83%), however this remains high.
The broadly optimistic sentiments are continuous within the qualitative responses to the survey, reinforcing the positivity seen towards the process overall.
- "The way the Fund operates is focused on getting the best out of those applying, and thus proactively promotes community ownership and the groups that put time and effort into this".
- "I feel it is great, and a model for how these processes should be. There is a lot of detail needed but it is not disproportionate, and above all there is a degree of flexibility which is usually lacking in big funding or government processes."
Overall, the Scottish Land Fund is very well received, and the vast majority of applicants to the fund are supportive of the processes.
There is a problem
