Shetland travel scheme

This scheme is designed to support individuals living in low income households to participate in national and international events.

We will consider funding for:

  • Travel and accommodation costs away from Shetland;
  • Travel and accommodation for an accompanying parent / guardian for individuals under the age of 18, where required;
  • Subsistence costs up to £20 / day;
  • Entry fees.

We will not fund:

  • Retrospective costs;
  • Conferences and seminars;
  • Holidays and general entertainment costs, e.g. cinema, theme parks;
  • ‘In kind’ non cash costs;
  • Equipment and materials;
  • Publicity and promotion costs;
  • Local travel and accommodation costs;
  • Capital projects;
  • Costs that should be met by statutory bodies;
  • Any other costs which are deemed non-essential.

We hope that it will make a real difference to the quality of life of people living in Shetland, whilst also raising the profile of Shetland, elsewhere in the UK and across the world.
