    Written by on July 12, 2019

    A Stirling group, offering support to young people who’ve experienced trauma, have received £45,000 in lottery funding.

    Wellbeing Scotland will use the money to increase their support programme – benefitting 300 young people aged 8 years and above.

    Meanwhile, Forth Valley Disability Sports Association in Falkirk have been given £18,000.

    They provide sport programmes for youngsters with physical, sensory or learning difficulties.

    Announcing today’s funding totalling, £747,452, Maureen McGinn, National Lottery Community Fund Scotland Chair, said, “Young Start aims to help children and young people across Scotland realise their potential while also building invaluable skills and confidence for the future. These brilliant groups reflect that aim by placing young people at their heart of project design, delivery and evaluation. It’s an absolute delight to announce this funding.
