Three charities working in West Lothian have received almost £50,000 of funding through the Time of Your Life programme run by Corra Foundation.
• Age Scotland has been awarded £16,884 to support the costs of developing the West Lothian Men’s Network.
• Acredale House Association has been awarded £19,061 to deliver the Optima Daytime Connections project to provide outreach day activities for people aged 50 to 70.
• Third Age Computer Fun has been awarded £12,487 to set up three computer clubs and develop intergenerational work through volunteering.
Mary Craig OBE, Chief Executive of Corra Foundation, said: “We’re really excited to be working with these charities through the Time of Your Life programme. Over the next year all three will be working to deliver innovative preventative work with 50 to 70 year olds living in West Lothian. The aim is to help local people in this age group get as much out of life for as long as possible by helping them stay as well as they can, providing opportunities to meet and support each other and ensuring people don’t become socially isolated or lonely.”
