New opportunities for Scottish communities with Lottery grants
Parents with learning disabilities and people affected by homelessness are to benefit from new training, education and employment opportunities, while isolated elderly people will get out and about and remain independent for longer, thanks to the latest grants from the Big Lottery Fund.
Yesterday (9 MAY) eleven projects across Scotland are sharing in over £4 million from BIG’s Investing in Communities fund aimed at supporting those most in need.
Parents living with a learning disability are to benefit from an award of £520,088 through the Equal Say for Parents project, which supports vulnerable families. Over four years, 120 Glasgow parents can boost their confidence and self-esteem through group activities and training in parenting skills. The project will help parents to better understand child protection issues and their children’s needs.
