Partnership Drugs Initiative: A national approach to local funding in Scotland
This case study is one of five exploring how independent charitable funders and local, regional and national public agencies can work together in a given geographic area.
The case studies are part of IVAR’s wider work on place-based funding approaches, which includes Working in Place: A framework for developing and designing place-based funding approaches and Working in Place: Collaborative funding in practice.
The Partnership Drugs Initiative (PDI) is run by the Corra Foundation (previously called Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland) in partnership with Scottish Government and the Robertson Trust. The PDI provides funding to charities working with children and young people affected by substance issues, and produces insights for policy and practice. It operates across Scotland, working with regional Alcohol and Drug Partnerships and third sector organisations to align funding to local needs.
