£11,000 funding secured for Welcare – well done Hannah!

Not one, but three new sources of funding for Welcare

Hannah Franklin, our Inner London Child and Family Support Service Manager, has had multiple successes this month – securing not one, but three new sources of funding for Welcare.

Through applications completed alongside a busy work schedule, Hannah has secured the following:

 

Awards for All – National Lottery: £9,000

This will go to funding for our Young people’s service. This includes OurPlace, a support group for children beginning to transition into adolescence and secondary school; With Respect, an in-school group which works with children facing emotional difficulties or risk of exclusion; as well as some one-to-one work with young people aged 11-13.

 

London Catalyst Projects fund: £1,000

This will go towards our Reducing Holiday Hunger programme for Summer 2019, in partnership with North Lambeth Deanery and Together Southwark.

 

Samaritan Grant London Catalyst: £ 1,000

Designed to help people in immediate need – whether to ensure that children are fed and have access to essentials, or to provide transport to a job interview, this fund will go to helping with service users’ short term needs.

 

“It’s a great pleasure when we can bring in this kind of support,” says Hannah. “This new funding will make a big difference in our plans for 2019.”

It had been 3 years in the making but it was well worth the wait! Last Friday our Rock Choir fundraiser took place at St Mary's Church, Bromley, organised by the Friends of Welcare in Bromley.
