The Foundation funds small charities and organisations and aims to fund work which:
- will make a lasting difference to people’s lives rather than simply alleviating the symptoms or current problems
- is aimed at reducing isolation, stigma and discrimination, and
- encourages or enables unpopular groups to share in the life of the whole community
Specifically, the grant will fund a Peer Support Volunteer training workshop and additional paid hours for Peer Support Coordinators over the next 12 months, to enhance the sustainability of the service.
We are very grateful to the Trustees of the Allen Lane Foundation for supporting our vital work. Find out more about the Foundation at their website.
