greenspace scotland is delighted to have been selected as one of seven OVO Gives Back Charities for 2020.

Our Young Placechangers programme supports young people to take the lead, bringing together their wider community to improve local spaces. Support from the OVO Foundation will help us #BuildBackBetter working with youth groups in Dunfermline on climate change and renewable energy projects.

The OVO Foundation has pledged £120,000 to support seven local partners. Each will receive a cash grant from OVO Foundation, and volunteering support when appropriate from OVO staff. Partnerships have been formed with organisations that are providing both immediate relief and long-term responses to people affected by Coronavirus. The OVO Foundation’s goal remains the same: to help meet the needs of local communities and come together to create positive social change.
