Perth Harbour Community Fund Awards Announcement


The Perth Harbour Community Fund was created to make a difference and benefit the lives of people living in Perth and Kinross. 

The Fund was first launched in 2021 and made eight awards to groups tackling poverty, stigma and shame, social inclusion, health and wellbeing and organisations that help people become self-dependent and resilient. 

This year the Perth Harbour Community Fund is making nine awards to non-profit organisations who use the River Tay to deliver positive outcomes and benefit the lives of the people they engage with.  

The Fund will enable Plus Perth and Kinross’ mentors with experience and skills of working with people who have been under the psychiatric system to deliver walking groups, engaging vulnerable people while ensuring the environmental upkeep of the river. 

Perth Parrots Floorball Club ‘HangOUT’ project will deliver activities engaging LGBTIQ+ people. The project supported by the Fund will remove costs to participation, reduce social isolation and build confidence and connections.

Taymara will deliver River Tay trips to young people and their families affected by severe ill health or are living with a learning disability. 

Upper Tay Paths Group will create information points along their pathways and river walkways encouraging people to learn about Aberfeldy while enjoying the benefits of the outdoors. 

The Fund will support Mindspace’s Recovery College which offers a range of diverse groups and activities to enable people to develop their understanding and awareness of their unique mental health challenges and to find the means of best managing these.  

The Carse Canoe Club will purchase more equipment to meet the increasing demand for the club’s services while their participants can enjoy the benefits of increased physical activity. 

Perth Sailing Club will purchase a winch which will provide sustainability to allow activities to occur, with members undergoing training, to ensure maximum service given to club members and the wider community. 

The Perth Coastal Rowing Club will develop their participants skills through a series of training programmes which will in turn improve their physical and mental wellbeing. 

Finally, the Fund will support the growth of Perth Sea Cadets by enabling their capacity to increase the number of volunteers trained to support the young participants. 


The Perth Harbour Community Fund was created with support from the Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service (PKAVS).
