We’ve Been Awarded BIG LOTTERY!
Nearly 100 families and children with cerebral palsy living in County Durham will benefit from a £241,163 grant from the Big Lottery Fund (BIG).
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded Big Lottery Funding to provide an outreach conductive education service to parents and carers of children with cerebral palsy & other motor disorders across County Durham for the next two years. Conductors will travel to families homes, schools and local community centres to provide therapy.
Charity Manager Doug Long said: “We are absolutely delighted – this funding from the Big Lottery Fund is vital to expanding our service. We have more than 20 children on our waiting list for treatment.
The funding means we can expand in two ways. Firstly, we will be able to recruit more therapists to help more families who visit our centre. Secondly, some people cannot always access our service but this funding means we will now be able to take our service out to people who need it – to either a convenient community centre or even visit their home.”
