CCI delight as group secures £270,000 funding package
CCI moved into its £1.8 million Langloch Farm site in 2015
Clydesdale Community Initiatives has been successful in its application for £271,453 from the Big Lottery Fund as it looks to continue its work in the local area.
CCI will use the funding to improve the confidence and social networks of people with mental health issues or additional support needs in South Lanarkshire.
Colleen Scott of CCI said: “Support from the Big Lottery Fund will enable individuals experiencing isolation and loneliness to engage in small enterprise ventures where they can explore their interests and aspirations within a person centred and asset based environment.”
Clydesdale MSP Aileen Campbell is delighted that CCI has been successful and paid tribute to the staff at Langloch Farm.
She added: “I am delighted for CCI on being awarded this funding. As a group embedded in the local community, CCI does excellent work tackling social exclusion and stigma around mental health.
“This award is testament to the significant work they provide for many in Clydesdale, and is a vote of confidence in their work going forward.”
