“They will also play a critical role in supporting our recovery from the pandemic and in ensuring we work with shared endeavour towards ending Scotland’s contribution to climate change.

“It is clear that we must learn from our experience of lockdown – how we work, how we travel, how we live – and apply this to our approach to becoming a net zero society. In what remains an exceptionally difficult time for us all, this funding will provide fast, tangible support to deliver long-lasting benefits to communities across Scotland.” Roseanna Cunningham, Climate Change Secretary has stated.
