Resilient Scotland Limited is the corporate trustee of the JESSICA (Scotland) Trust. The JESSICA (Scotland) Trust was established in 2012 with a £15 million endowment from the Big Lottery Fund. Our focus is to provide social investment which enables social enterprises, community organisations and charities to contribute to the sustainable regeneration of areas and communities affected by long term economic decline. Our investments allow organisations to become more enterprising and self-sufficient, and to have an impact on local regeneration.
We are committed to achieving the following charitable objects:
- To prevent and/or relieve poverty among those living in Scotland
- To advance community development, and urban and rural regeneration, in Scotland
- To advance education in Scotland.
We at Resilient recognise the difficulties recent economic challenges have brought to local communities. We will work with you, providing affordable investment and support where required, to help you to make the most of enterprising opportunities and address disadvantage in your local area.
Resilient Scotland has invested in many enterprises across our 13 eligible areas.* These include organisations working in the areas of employment, improving local facilities, promoting the benefits of strong communities, health and wellbeing, increasing access to arts and sport, and working to conserve our natural environment.
