Local MSP Welcomes Funding Boost for People First Fraserburgh

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a grant from the Corra Foundation to a local group. Each year, the foundation distributes just under £1 million through its Henry Duncan Grants programme to grassroots charities working in their local communities.

People First (Fraserburgh), which is based in Banffshire & Buchan Coast constituency, has been awarded the grant £4,000 towards the salary of the Part-time Facilitator.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“These awards show how Corra Foundation continues to be at the heart of funding local communities. I’m delighted these grassroots charities are receiving these funds, enabling them to continue their great work in my constituency. Many of the Henry Duncan Grants go on staff and running costs like this, meaning they are a lifeline for local charities in this tough financial climate.”

Corra Foundation Chief Executive Fiona Duncan added:

“Corra Foundation is privileged to be able to contribute to the work of local groups across Scotland, supporting them as they make a real difference in the lives of many people, including vulnerable children and young people, isolated older people, unpaid carers, families experiencing poverty and people affected by disability or mental health issues. We are committed to our vision of a society in which people create positive change and enjoy fulfilling lives and distributing £1m a year via the Henry Duncan Grants is part of this.”
