Corporate social responsibility shouldn’t just be a tick in the box!
Loch Duart have had the distinct privilege of connecting, sharing, learning and serving the communities of Sutherland and the Uists for the last 20 years. As part of our continued commitment to the locations where our people live and work, and that we believe are worth caring about, we have created ‘Salmon Pool’.
We know that all over Sutherland and Uist, charities and groups are doing incredible work to help others and to make the local communities better places to be.
Developed in collaboration with Cargill Aqua Nutrition, supplier of Loch Duart’s bespoke salmon feed, our joint ‘Salmon Pool’ is a substantial and long term funding project which will provide additional financial support to local organisations for projects that bring tangible benefits to sustain the local communities of Sutherland and the Uists.
We believe that people working together build communities that will thrive – ‘Salmon Pool’ can help make that happen.
Who is eligible for the Salmon Pool?
Our principal aim is to provide financial support to local organisations for projects making a tangible contribution to the community.
We invite applications from recognised groups within the communities of Sutherland and the Uists. We’d like to hear from individuals and organisations with a determination to genuinely make a difference and a commitment to sustainable communities – we want to help!
Loch Duart and Cargill believe that strong communities make the foundation for a better world, this is the principle that underpins everything we do.
The fund will be available until the end of December 2020 and applications may be made at any time.
We will consider funding projects in the following areas:
- Sustainable livelihood initiatives within the communities of Sutherland and the Uists
- Healthy living and welfare
- Environmental enhancement
