Application Criteria

We are passionate about having a positive impact on our local community. We do so by investing 10% of our profits each year into the local area through our Community Support team, who work with key figures and groups to fund projects that benefit the people of Lanark or the town of Lanark as a whole. Have a look at some of the recent projects we have helped to fund.

Who do we support?

Border Biscuits Community Support funding is available to projects located within Lanark. When we consider applications, we do so in relation to the community benefit we believe the project will offer. As a result, we only support projects that fit within the following categories:

  • Sports
  • Arts
  • Heritage
  • Learning
  • Events
  • Leisure/Recreation
  • Digital

The following list sets out the types of groups and activities not supported by Border Biscuits Community Support:

  • National charities outside Lanark.
  • Non community projects (a group does not have to be a registered charity to apply, however, the project must benefit the local community within the set boundaries.)
  • National or overseas projects.
  • Core statutory services.
  • Individuals
  • Political/Religious groups
  • Health
  • Social Welfare

All applications are considered at the monthly Community Support meeting. We will be in touch to let you know the outcome of your application or we may require more detail around your submission to allow us to make a fully informed decision.
