MSP Calls on Local Groups to Grab Better Breaks for Kids Funding

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement of the latest round of funding of the Better Breaks programme.

The scheme, funded by the Scottish Government supports organisations who provide creative short breaks for the benefit of disabled children, young people, and their carers. A total distribution of £1.2million of grants will begin in April 2013.  

Mr Stevenson is encouraging all eligible individuals and groups to apply for this funding and to take advantage of application workshops hosted by Shared Care Scotland.

A workshop will be held at Marywell Training and Conference Centre in Aberdeen. 

Mr Stevenson said:

“The Better Breaks programme is a great cause, which makes a real difference in the lives of disabled children, young people, and their families by allowing them some respite through a short break. It’s a wonderful way to create opportunities for disabled people in our community and goes a long way in aiding recovery and improving quality of life.

“However, we need all those who could be putting these funds to good use to get in touch and apply for a grant which could mean something very special for people in our community.”
