Inverclyde charity the Inverclyde Autistic Support Group has secured £2,710 in funding. The money is coming from Corra Foundation and is part of almost £200,000 of funding that has been awarded this month to 48 charities for work across Scotland.
The Inverclyde Autistic Support Group supports and promotes the welfare of children and adults with autism and their families by running monthly support groups, and facilitating play-schemes, Easter and Summer holiday clubs and a Saturday Club for children on the autistic spectrum. The award of £2,710 will be used to pay for the costs of hiring a venue and buying resources for the summer holiday club.
Mary Craig OBE, Chief Executive of Corra Foundation, said: “This award will all help improve the lives of people living in Inverclyde. The Inverclyde Autistic Support Group has had one other award from us in the past, and it is great to be able to continue to support its work. We’re interested in hearing from other charities in the area that are working to make life better for people who are disadvantaged, and the next closing date for applications is 15th July.”
