Forth Valley groups receive lottery cash boost
A Stirling group, which provides physical therapy to kids with disabilities, has received more than £130,000 in lottery funding.
Bounce-T will use the money to provide free therapeutic play sessions to children with physical and learning disabilities.
Meanwhile Central Advocacy Partners in Falkirk, providing support to people with learning disabilities, has received £115,000.
They’re among a number of groups across Scotland to receive funding.
Maureen McGinn, The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland Chair,said: “It’s all thanks to National Lottery players that today’s £5 million investment is able to reach into communities across Scotland and transform the lives of local people.
“Some of the funding will help other young people, just like Jodie, cope with their caring roles and give them the chance to connect and bond with others in a similar situation. The support the Fitzimmons family receives demonstrates the importance of this work and how this project offers a range of tailored support to young people when they need it the most.”
