The Caithness & North Sutherland Fund (CNSF), a grant body funded by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), received its second instalment of £300k at a recent stakeholder event held in the new low level waste repository vault at the Dounreay site. This funding is the latest instalment of the NDA's £4M community benefit package being provided via DSRL. CNSF received £1M at the start of the vault's construction and will receive further instalments of £300k pa from 2014 to 2023.

Since receiving the initial million pounds the Fund has awarded over £855k to 65 community led projects that help continue to make Caithness & North Sutherland an attractive place to live work and invest. The total value of these projects is in excess of £4.4m. The new rugby sports pavilion in Thurso, the woodland shelter in Dunnet Forest, the Transport for Tongue initiative and the Wick Coastal Rowing Club are just a few examples of community projects supported by the Fund.

David Batters, the NDA's Chief Financial Officer said, "I am pleased the NDA money is being used for a wide variety of projects that are bringing lasting benefit to the communities living near Dounreay.  The CNSFund Directors are doing a great job in making sure the funds are being invested well."

CNSFund Chairman John Henderson said, "The Fund has been able to support a wide range of exceptional community projects that will benefit our communities for many years to come. Caithness & North Sutherland is an attractive thriving community to live work and invest in and we look forward to continue supporting worthy initiatives that deliver a valuable contribution to the sustainable future of the Dounreay travel to work area."

CNSF is managed by a Board of local representatives. The Board is seeking applicants for a new director to fill a vacancy that has come about as a result of a scheduled retirement at the 2014 AGM. The successful candidate will also become a member of the Fund’s Assessment Committee which holds quarterly meetings. The Board is keen to hear from individuals with a good knowledge of our community/ voluntary sector and who have a good understanding of the needs of the local communities. In order to maintain a geographic balance, candidates from the East Caithness area are particularly encouraged to come forward to fill this vacancy.
