A total of 81 membership organisations have been successful in applying for the Tourism Destination and Sector Support Fund, which we launched in May.
The Association of Scotland’s Self-Caterers (ASSC) is delighted to have been one of the organisations that VisitScotland has been able to support.
Riddell Graham, Director of Industry & Destination Development, VisitScotland said:
“The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on the Scottish tourism industry and this funding package for destination organisations and sector groups will hopefully go some way towards supporting them through this challenging time.
“We are pleased to have been able to increase our original funding pot to enable us to provide some funding for all eligible applicants. Even then it is unsurprising that the number of applications has been in excess of what is available and as such difficult decisions have had to be taken.
“Recovery will require our collective efforts and this fund represents a great opportunity to enable a collaborative approach to meet the massive challenges set by the pandemic and ensure the best possible outcomes for the whole of the visitor economy.”
