BIG Lottery funding for Moffat CAN!
Moffat CAN has just announced funding from the Big Lottery that will allow CAN to provide work experience and training for those struggling to find work - 22 people each year for 3 years. Several permanent positions will also be created throughout the project. We have always had people at the heart of what we do, now we can really make a difference and provide much needed support in the coming years. The project will swing into action in August - watch this space!
New funding for CAN:
Moffat Youth CAN!
Funding from the new Scottish Junior Climate Challenge Fund means we can work closely with Moffat Academy and Moffat Uniformed Groups on projects that will reduce their carbon footprints. We're thrilled with the news and really looking forward to working with our young people in the coming months. Click here for the Moffat Youth CAN page
CAN Community CAR CLUB!
Moffat CAN is hoping to create a Community Car Club for Moffat. The scheme would mean that people could use a car on a Pay as you Go scheme, so you could have access to a car without paying the full running costs of owning your own car (about £3500 per year). The project would be in partnership with Car Plus, who are funded by the Scottish Government. Such projects have been shown to be very successful in other parts of the country and we really feel that having access to a car in this way would be of great benefit to those living in a rural area like ours. We are currently working on a business plan and the application for the project, so watch this space for news. If successful, more funding would be applied for to extent the scheme to nearby towns.

New Project - Food Waste Collections
The average Scottish home wastes £430 of food every year!
Moffat CAN has just started a food waste collection service in Moffat. Food Waste forms a large part of the rubbish we throw away. Here at Moffat CAN we put it to good use. We have a 'Rocket In-Vessel Composter' which takes all the food and helps us make it into beautiful rich compost in just a few weeks. The composter can even take cooked food, meat and small bones.
We supply you with a kitchen caddy and your first supply of corn starch liners. You can then put your caddy out twice a week and will take the food waste away and recycle it for you. By doing twice weekly collection your food waste is not sitting around for too long. Collections are carried out by our newest employee Malcolm, on his customised trike.
