We have received Reaching Communities funding of Â£312,542 from the Big Lottery Fund for the second time round! This funding will expand our project to improve the quality of life of vulnerable people who are most in need through the provision of household necessities. People will also have access to skills and employability training, delivered through a volunteer programme.
“We are more than blessed to receive this funding. As poverty levels rise, the greater the need for this charity. In the last year alone, we have supported 1,973 people!Â The first batch of funding enabled us to employ staff and move to a bigger premises. This funding will enable us to pay for staff wages and other costs needed over the next 3 years. In addition to this, we aim to build on our workshop enterprise enabling us to become much more self efficient. We couldn’t of grown to the level we have and supported so many people without the support of the Big Lottery Fund.Â “- Anna Hartland, Founder and Overall Project Manager
