We are delighted to announce that we are 1 of 71 lucky recipients in Wales to receive a life-changing grant from The National Lottery Community Fund. Our subsidiary, Walsingham Support Community Solutions have received £85,785 which will be used to give young people with learning disabilities the opportunity to carry out work placements.
Clare Bugler, Director of Walsingham Support Community Solutions said “We’ll be able to support young people develop skills and confidence for the work place. Until now we have been supporting a small number of students, but now we will be able to support 35, 16-19-year olds.” We aim to work together for greater independence, and this grant along with Ysgol Pen y Bryn school will help us do just that. “I'm really happy the students now have the same opportunities as students in mainstream schools”, Clare went on to say that we value people we disabilities the same as anyone else and are proud to have the chance to provide them with a space to help them live their lives to the full.
We will continue to share the how this generous amount of money awarded to us will change the lives and opportunities of these young people with learning disabilities.
