A Forth Valley group, which provides support to family members affected by substance misuse, has received £200,000 in lottery funding.
Transform Forth Valley is using the money to continue their 1-to-1 services for children and young people.
Diane Cairns, Service Manager, Transform Forth Valley, said: “This funding will allow us to continue to deliver compassionate, flexible and therapeutic interventions to children, young people and families impacted by substance abuse right across the Forth Valley area.
“It will also allow us to offer an early intervention outreach service, which will bridge an identified gap in services. This work is so important as it will assist in the early identification of need and support for vulnerable families, uncovering hidden harm and addressing the impact of adversities experienced, allowing children, young people and families to heal from their past or present traumas at the earliest possible juncture, allowing them to thrive and resulting in better future outcomes.”
Meanwhile, Clackmannanshire Women’s has been given £111,228. The group will use the funding to continue to provide an independent advocacy service that will benefit women living in Clackmannanshire who are victims of domestic abuse.
And Camelon Juniors Football Club has received £10,000 – to convert four portacabins at their grounds into accessible spaces. They will be used by the club as well as other local groups.
