It is with regret that Fincan's Board of Directors announce that Fincan closed on 31 June 2018.
As you all know, over recent years austerity measures have affected all organisations and the availability of grant funding. Over a number of years, the criteria for grant funding has quite rightly been focused on service delivery and consequently it has been harder and harder to secure funding so the Board have taken the decision to close Fincan.
On a more positive note we as Directors decided to use residual funds to make a difference to those in poverty via a grant payment opportunity to subsidise FareShare membership fees. We are pleased to announce that 8 organisations were successful and they will start delivering their services within the next few weeks.
Keep up the good work.Fincan Board of Directors
