Autism charity help
A Lanarkshire-based charity which provides support to young people with autism has received a huge funding boost thanks to The Big Lottery Fund Scotland.
REACH Lanarkshire Autism have secured more than £77,000 as part of the lottery fund’s latest rounds of grants.
The charity will use the money to increase the capacity and sustainability of its Improving Lives of Families with Autism project.
The grant will fund new staff to deliver therapy, family support and life skills sessions to help families who have a young person with an autism spectrum disorder in Lanarkshire.
Kirsteen Allan, trustee with REACH Lanarkshire Autism, said: “Our charity has come a long way since it was founded in 2012 and this funding allows us to take REACH to the next step.
“It gives us the opportunity to employ staff who will support and advise our members.
“We cannot thank the Big Lottery Fund enough for affording us the opportunity to grow as a charity and to continue to make a difference to those affected by autism and their families throughout Lanarkshire.”
