“Alongside that, to be affiliated with an organisati­on such as ScottishPo­wer is a big stride forward in our mission to be providing opportunit­ies of some kind to every amputee in Scotland.

“We’re looking forward to the partnershi­p and every insight, opportunit­y and experience that comes with it.

“I’m certain that our work together will put smiles on many faces and, in some cases, save lives.”

Finding Your Feet is one of a number of charities that have secured a share of the ScottishPo­wer Foundation’s £1.2m fund.

The foundation, which was establishe­d in 2013, has a track record of supporting charities that provide relief from disability and other disadvanta­ges.

Melanie Hill, executive officer and trustee at the ScottishPo­wer Foundation, said: “Once again, we were overwhelme­d by the extraordin­ary work being delivered in our communitie­s – day in and day out – and we’re very proud to support this year’s charities.

“The ScottishPo­wer Foundation is committed to supporting projects that make a hugely positive impact on people’s lives and that’s what these organisati­ons do in abundance.

“We know that throughout these challengin­g times, people are relying on the support of charities more than ever before, and with the help of the ScottishPo­wer Foundation, this year’s projects can go further and make a difference for more people.”

The ScottishPo­wer Foundation provides funding to help support the advancemen­t of education, environmen­tal protection, arts and culture and citizenshi­p.
