The 2019 CALA Homes Community Bursary Scheme – in partnership with the Edinburgh EveningNews - aims to provide support for a wide range of charities, organisations and good causes in Edinburgh.

The scheme aims to provide support for worthwhile organisations in the areas in which CALA operates, helping over 200 groups across the country since its launch.

Phillip Hogg, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (East), said: “The deadline for entries for our Community Bursary is fast approaching, so we’d urge local organisations, large or small, who would like to be considered for a share to apply now. CALA Homes has always been committed to making a positive and lasting contribution to the local communities in which it builds, and we’re looking forward to finding out about the great work being done in the area, and what support is needed locally.”
