Strategic partnership with Scottish Government

Tuesday, 21 May 2013

 

Woodcraft Folk is pleased to announce that we are one of 45 third sector organisations receiving a funding boost from the Scottish Government to enhance or develop work focussed on supporting the needs of young people and their families.

The Strategic Partnership Funding of £10 million across 45 organisations will strengthen the work of young people’s organisations working across Scotland, in areas such as adoption, vulnerable families, child health, literacy, bereavement counselling and parental support.

Minister for Children and Young People Aileen Campbell said:

“We are working to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up, including increasing the level of free early learning and childcare through the Children and Young People Bill, which will save families equivalent to around £700 per child.

“Scottish families already benefit from a wide range of support and the organisations receiving a share of this £10 million will help to improve what is on offer.

“Thanks to our investment, great organisations like Circle, which I am visiting today, will be able to take their work further into the community, helping families in need across Scotland get access to the right information and resources.”
