Cash will help to fight inequality
A project operating in Castlemilk is one of 224 across Scotland that will benefit from £20million in funding to drive forward Scotland’s equality agenda.
The Castlemilk Law and Money Advice Centre for their Violence Against Women project.
The scheme assists women and children who have suffered physical or mental injury following domestic abuse by providing advice and representation about Criminal Injuries Compensation.
South Lanarkshire Women’s Aid will also benefit from the cash.
Equalities Secretary Angela Constance announced the full list of projects last week.
She said: ““Equality is part of the aspiration and ambition we have for Scotland.
“No one should be treated unfairly, suffer injustice or be denied opportunities because of their age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or sexual orientation.
“Amongst the 224 projects receiving funding support this year are frontline services which are working directly with communities to address local issues.”
