The SURF Awards has been running since 1998. It provides an opportunity for regeneration projects of all sizes to demonstrate value to funders and partners, support team-building and develop a national profile.

2022 Awards Timeline

2022 marks 24 years of the SURF Awards, showcasing and sharing best practice, and promoting learning from ‘what works’ in regenerating Scotland’s places. Each year the SURF Awards has celebrated some of the most impressive outcomes in tackling physical, social and economic decline in communities throughout the country.

This publication profiles the 15 projects shortlisted in the 2022 SURF Awards. Projects range in scale, activity and geography, from smaller scale community hubs in Dornoch and Bressay to arts and film programmes in Forres, Kilmarnock and Hawick and larger scale investments in Kirkintilloch, Glasgow and Alloa. We hope all 15 will inspire those working in regeneration projects throughout Scotland, and provide opportunities for learning.
